    Grandma Donna, it gives me great joy knowing that I will see you again in Heaven. I am so happy you accepted Jesus as your savior. You are now with Him and you’re not experiencing any more pain or sorrow.

    Take rest in Him and we will see you again!

    Love you,

  2. My beautiful sister you have loved me all my life and I will miss you for the rest of mine. RIP sis I love you.

    I had not been in touch with Donna for a little while, but when we exchanged emails they were always entertaining. It is a shame we never met, but being in south Wales UK was too big a journey. This is so sad and am sure that she will be missed by so many people, family and friends.
    My wife and I send our best wishes, for all to take care and try to stay safe in this very difficult time.
    I would love to hear from any family member, when you would feel it appropriate.

  4. Mom I sure do miss you… Chris.
    You always said to keep a quarter in my pocket in case I need call; hope plastic will do 🙂
