Dear Donna, my cousin, and dear friend, I will always cherish the friendship and memories we have shared over the years. I admire how you persevered through so many difficult and challenging times, whether it be with health(enduring years of kidney dialysis, severe pain, etc.) or with personal hardships. And yet you still managed to truly care for others and to be a light for all of us. You would even step in to encourage and offer great guidance to young people you knew. Everyone needs a Donna 😀 I know you played down much of what you went through. You always expressed how grateful you felt, as you said, for your many blessings. And despite how difficult your day could be, you went as far as to say that others have gone through much worse. Thank you Donna for your kindness and friendship! I know you are at peace now and pain-free. To all you family and friends, may God and Donna’s precious memories carry you through this difficult loss. Donna’s love for God will be an inspiration and strength to us all. Sending love and prayers to all of you, 🥰 April
