I have such a good memory of your loved one. My daughter Shannon and Cam were classmates. On graduation night Donna and her husband sat in front of me and my husband. Donna turned around to speak and when she did we both started laughing. We had on the same dress. Now some women would be torn out of their frame,not us! In fact, she said one of the nicest things to me. “I rather you have a dress like mine more than anyone I know”. What a classy lady. I know her fight has been a long one but she is at rest now and enjoying some of that much earned peace. Keep you in my prayers.

so sad of your loss, but you all have so much to smile about. Donna was one inspiring woman and touched so many people. Thru it all, she never lost her smile, truly one beautiful woman. Praying that God will comfort and give all of the family peace.

My heart is heavy today as I am in Florida and not there with you and my prayers have been for you and our family over the last 3 days. I am so glad we had the family reunion this summer to spend time with you and Donna and have a happy day together. Wish I could say something to make this easier for you but I don’t know what that would be….just know that you are on my mind and in my prayers.

With love,

Judi and John

What a wonderful inspiration Donna was to my life. I will always remember her kindness shown to me, Al, and Jackson when we first started attending Oak Grove. She was a wonderful Christian woman that set her life as an example for others. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this time. May your memories keep her close to you always.
