Ronnie, I was very sad to hear of Miss Donnas passing. She was so very kind to me even after Marc and I stopped dating. If I can do anything for you please don't hesitate to call me. 526.7262. Becky Dickinson Reed

Ronnie, I am so saddened to learn of Donna's death. I am so sorry for your loss. Working with her for almost 10 yrs. was
a pleasure. We shared many recipes and much girl talk. I pray God will give you comfort in the days to come.

Ronnie, I was so sorry to read that Donna had died. I kept meaning to call her about her Mom's quilting things that she wanted me to have. I've been out of town part of Nov. and just about all of Dec. My sympathy is with you and her family. Janis Mann
