Dear Marc and Family,
So sorry to hear of Donna's passing...She was a special and unique woman, and a lot of fun to work for and be with! I'll always remember her, and my Mad Science instructor days. My heart goes out to the Price/Rubenstein families during this difficult time. Janis Sklare

Marc, Becky, Lauren and Scott,
I was so very sad to hear about Donna. She was an old hockey friend. Donna always had a great attitude and was so passionate with all of the the activities she got involved with. Her creativity and leadership were great strengths. Her service was beautiful today and a great tribute to an amazing woman. Becky, you did a wonderful job telling us about your mom and all the things you loved about her and what made her so great. I was lucky to have met up with Donna last year (with Carol Gaines) for the first time in a long time. We had a lovely lunch. She talked about Becky's wedding and all of the things she was planning to create for it. I'm so glad she was able to be there and contribute like she planned. She talked about Lauren's accomplishments too and how proud she was of both of her girls. I have many fond memories of Donna during our early Frozen Snapper years and I will never forget her. I know she will be missed by many. You are all in my thoughts and prayers,
