She is at peace now.
I was so sorry to hear of Donna’s passing. I have known Donna for many, many years as she and my sister Linda were lifelong friends. I pray that her suffering wasn’t long and that her and Linda are enjoying many laughs together again. She was a good and kind soul. May she Rest In Peace.
Louise and family
My deepest of Sympathies to you and all your Family.
