    I have wonderful memories of Donna, I’ve known her and her family all my life. Donna and her Mom Ruby used to visit me when I wasn’t active in the church. They always made me feel loved and cared for. I remember as a kid thinking how cool their family was because they had six kids, three boys and three girls just like our family. I will always love her.
