    I remember working with Donna at hospital when I was a candy stripper. She was quick to teach me the things I needed to know to be successful. By the end of the summer, I was being nominated by sponsor for who’s who among high school students. I will be forever greatful.

    I worked with Donna at the hospital and I appreciated her so much. Donna was so kind to call my Mother Reathyl every week and chat with her. Donna was such a faithful friend. I know she will be missed by her family.
    My sincere condolences!
