  1. My sincere sympathy to Donna's family. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in God's promise to soon "swallow up death forever" and "wipe away the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25:8)

  2. Becky,

    My sympathies are with you and the family. My mother used to work with Donna at F.W. Means and I used to sell her cosmetics.

    Shirley Kilzer

  3. I grew up with Donna and went thru school with her. Most of all I remember her as a positive person and one that never gave up; a fighter. The world needs more people like Donna. May she rest in peace.
    Bill Cooke.
