Donna you will be truly missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing you. You never changed from our High School days. Always a smile whenever I saw you. Also thank you for being a second grandma to my granddaughter Emily and Olivia. Emily will always have her memories and be able to tell Olivia all about how special you were. Patti (class of 1969)
