    I remember every time I went to visit Aunt Donna and Uncle Donald, I always knew candy would be waiting for me. Donna was a sweet, loving person and I will never forget her. Although I haven’t seen her in several years, it seems like yesterday when I saw her beautiful face and heard her sweet voice. Her smile made me smile and she was always a happy, caring person that I cherished and always will. She always made a fuss because I was born so close to her birthday, but didn’t quite make it! I will miss her terribly, but I know she’ll always be in my heart. I’m so sorry for your loss Uncle Donald, but she’s no longer suffering and in pain and she’s in God’s good graces for eternity. I love you both so much and hope nothing but the best for you in the future. You’ll have a place in my heart forever and always.<3

    We are sorry for your loss, uncle Donald. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I have lots of memories spending time with you and Aunt Donna, from Spring breaks to many holidays, and family birthdays. She was always so crafty and making us things. Not to mention all the hours she put into those home movies and family history books. And we are all so thankful that she did.
    All our love,
    Misty, Shawn, Destiny, and Brooke
