    Dear Debbie, I read today that we lost a beautiful friend and loving sister. I am so sorry. Thank goodness for some really great memories of us together as teenagers and neighbors. So many years ago (or was it just yesterday)! I have to be out of town Saturday, otherwise I would be there to celebrate Donnas' life. My thoughts are with you. Love, Barbara

    Heaven will never be the same now that Donna has arrived. The sun will be a little brighter as she beams her love to earth. I will never forget the joy and laughter she brought into the workplace while we worked together at Hanover Center.
