    Josh, Adam and Family: My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I have fond memories of her and am glad that when I visited Lawrence last, that I was able to enjoy a good dinner and some good laughs with her at Free State. She was a fun and fantastic lady!

    Dear Adam, Josh, Debbie and Joe,
    Donna was like my 3rd Sister. Our entire Family loved her. Quick with a beautiful smile and excitement, yet always had a special twinkle in her eyes when speaking
    of her Boys. Donna took many paths in her life. The most memorable one for me will allways be the one from our house to hers. Love, Bev

    I was a good friend of Donna’s in elementary school and at Boonton High School, and cared about her very much. However, I moved to the west coast for college and lost touch. I enjoyed catching up with Donna at recent Boonton High reunions. My condolences to her children.
