Sorry to read about Donna's passing. Went all through school with Donna. Old friends, with Donna and Susan Wright. Susan said it all. The whole family are in my prayers. Lafayette 1967. Donna Rest Easy.
Love you Donna. Rest easy and say hi to my dad for me.
I am so sorry to hear of Donna's passing. I worked for her at Rainbow Brite daycare while I was in college. She loved children much and was so kind and caring. She has always had a special place in my heart. Until we meet again ❤️
Hey Hargis, I'm real sorry to hear about your loss. Just want you to know I'm saying a prayer for peace for you and your family during this difficult time.
Donna was the most caring sitter to my 2 children, Sarah and Anthony, for many years. As a working mom, it meant the world to me to have such a loving, kind, fun person care for my kids in my absence. All of us loved Donna! Prayers to her family as you navigate life without your sweet wife, mom, sister, and grandma.
