    Debbie, I am so thankful to have met Donna while working with you in Wilm. I always admired the love and zest for life the 2 of you shared. "Life gives us time, but only love gives it meaning." I wish you comfort in all the memories- I know you will miss her for now, but will see her again one day. God bless you both.

    Angels possess many different forms here on Earth. Donna's wings surfaced and she has returned to heaven. She touched so many lifes while she was with us and will be remembered. Debbie and the rest of the family, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Donna and Debbie both were my "girlfriends" when a was a little boy, even though there was about ten years difference in our ages. They would be laying out in the sun in their Mom's (Dot Dot) back yard and I would go over to talk to them and especially watch them, they have always been so beautiful. I will miss Donna always. And Debbie I will always still be YOUR BABY! Love,Steve
