Junior high and senior high were a blast sharing days with Donna. Facebook brought us together again years later and we actually got to have lunch together before she moved to Atlantic City. I will miss her friendship and pray for comfort for her loved ones. She is with Our Lord and Savior now and will never again feel the pain she had to endure. May you rest in peace, Donna. I will surely miss your smile and friendship.
