Peter, Brett, Todd and Nikki, my heart breaks for all of you. Your mom was the best and I loved her so much... Donna, my beautiful friend. You always knew how to be strong and you never gave up fighting until God needed you to be with him. We had so many good times together which I will cherish those memories forever. You could light up a room with your smile and make everyone laugh. Now you can fly up in heaven with no pain. We will miss you and you will be in our hearts forever. Love you my angel, Give mom a kiss Theresa and Peter

Donna Marie, their are no words to express how grateful I am to have had such an amazing sister as you. I will forever cherish the special loving bond we shared as sisters and as friends. You gave me strength and courage when the going got tough and were always my biggest cheerleader. Thank you so much for everything!
