Steve & the Dooks family .... seems like just yesterday that as friends we ran carefree on Virgilwood Drive ... We've packed in a lot of life since then and here we are still present for each other to grieve dear, dear Donna. The inherent losses in life (some dreams, houses, jobs etc) does not quite prepare one for the also inherent loss of loved ones .... our faith and the understanding of 'rest' and 'a morning' buffers some of the ache. My memories of Donna include her elegant, short (like me!) stature, her rich singing voice, and her calm, warm inviting presence. A loss indeed ... yet Donna's life serves as inspiration to us who remain to live out all her fine qualities in our connections with each other as we continue on life's journey. I will continue to send lots of courage and good energy your way as you cope with the acute loss. Condolences to the entire family.
Ashley and family. We send our sincere sympathy to you and your family. Donna was a kind and loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. We are thinking of you and sending our love.
Papa and Roberta

Donna was an amazing person and we were all so lucky to have known and have her in our lives. Her courage and bravery was and inspiration to us all during her illness. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.
My deepest condolences to the family. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers, I am so sorry for your loss. To Donna's two beautiful daughters, Lindsay and Ashley, you are a legacy to your mother's warm heart and cheerful smile. I will remember her most when I watch you with your little ones. All my love and warmest blessings as you miss her, until that blessed morning.
I will remember our times from days gone by, and our conversations from past to present. The most graceful and beautiful woman I have ever met. My prayers for the entire family will continue past these present days of sorrow, and to the days ahead. What a wonderful family reunion Jesus has promised us in Heaven one day, and so I look forward to that day.
