    I cannot express to you how sorry I am for your loss… I went thru this same thing last September with David, so i truly know how you are feeling. May God Bless you and give Donna eternal rest. She is in a better place now and there is no more suffering. There isn’t anything else I can say at a time like this, but my heart goes out to you and the family…

    My heartfelt sympathy to Donna’s family a friends. Donna was an employee where I worked until she retired. Not a day passed that she didn’t make me laugh or smile. I believe Donna knew I lived and respected her and she did me as well. God bless and hold her family close during this time.

    Angles came last night to take her home. I was blessed to have been part of her life for 27 years. Donna wasn’t like the dreaded mother-in-laws most people hear about. She was a mother but acted like my big sister. Donna loved games, the color pink, hummingbirds and was festinated by the lions. A UK fan that would put the student section to shame as she cheered the loudest in the crowd. Everyone was always drawn to her personality. She would pull you in and not let go. There is no words to describe the sadness this morning; but knowing the pain she will never feel again. Donna will be missed so much by so many. I will miss her laugh, her hugs, her quirkily little sayings, and that bright smile. Please keep Roger in your thoughts this is the toughest thing he will every go through. He always says the most important thing in his life is his girls, his mommy and me.

    Donna was not only a cousin, but she was my friend. My condolences to Adam and all the family. I was hoping that she would get well enough to come to the family reunion. I love you, Donna.

    Being in the family for well over fifty years Donna became the sister to me that I never had. She was a fun loving person, a real ” hills of Kentucky girl” and proud of it. Some of her sayings that only someone from Eastern Kentucky could understand would always make me laugh and scratch my head. She and Judy had a loving childhood and often relived their days of growing up, so many I wish I had written them down. Donna is at rest now, with Judy and her parents but most of all our Lord Jesus Christ. She did not dread or fear dying as she knew that Heaven awaited her. Rest in Peace Sister.
