I am shedding tears for your loss. The thoughts of many are with you, your family and friends.

Donna was my oncology nurse during my cancer treatment in 2005. I was blessed to gain her as a friend, and am honored to remember her as one of the best people I ever met.

My deepest condolences are with you all as you grieve.

Along with my love, I send prayers for your strength and that you find comfort in the days ahead.
