I loved Donna so much! She took a little bit to warm up to me but when she did, she was all in! Anywhere we would travel to, we had to get “a postcard for Donna”. My kids didn’t know her but they always knew we had to get Donna’s postcard. One of the last couple of times I saw her, I got 3 big hugs which meant so much to me! The last time I saw her, I could tell her body was tired. I know she is perfectly healed and at rest now. Donna nor her smile or hugs will ever be forgotten! Prayers for you all during this difficult time. Love you both. 💜

Joyce, Buddy and LIsa, I'm heartbroken to hear the news. Know I'm sending you all of my love, and many prayers for the coming days and months. I loved Donna so much, and will miss her emails asking me to come and visit for SOOK and her updates on how she did. I love you all so much. ~Tori

Donna, was a client of mine from Mpower. She had a great sense of humor and a awesome worker. I, and two others would take them to Hideaway Pizza., and on the way back to the workshop we would listen to Donna's favorite country artists Garth Brooks and Oak Ridge Boys. Especially, Garth's song of Friends in Low Places. She said to me this is my song for you, Betsy with a huge smile and hug too., for taking her today at Hideaway. She gave me a coffee cup, from Branson. For mybirthday present. And popcorn as a Christmas present for my family. She was a treasure for sure. I will miss my conversations. She will hold a special place in my heart. I will miss her. May, you sleep with the Angel's friend. Hugs!Read more

Donna is so special, and will always be remembered. I remember her sitting on my lap when I taught Sunday School. She was probably about 5 she loved to be apart of that small group. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers, and you are loved.
