I will surely miss Donna’s sweet spirit. She was a lovely lady. I could always count on our very first Christmas card of the year being from Donna, Willie & Henry and always looked forward to it. She will be greatly missed by all of her family, and I feel honored and proud to have called her part of our family. Our hearts go out to Donna’s loved ones.
