Donna had a way of making me feel like I was part of the family whenever I was visiting or hanging out with Tammy and Teresa when I was growing up. Lots of fun memories were made at their house. Well maybe some weren't so fun for her- soda pop on the ceiling! Her warm welcome and smile continued as an adult when I would stop by with my girls to visit her. What an awesome lady!
