Donna was known to us as nephew Peter's precious wife, a lovely lady. For many years our relationship was experienced only from a distance as we lived many miles apart, even across the Atlantic. Then, spending one day in her company endeared her to our hearts forever. Her beautiful character, sweet manner, amazing faith and love for life, family and the Lord left an indelible mark. God bless and comfort her loved ones. Donna is free from suffering, safe in the arms of her Savior.

For a brief time, Donna and I were Pen Pals. I enjoyed sharing books that we recommended to each other, and sharing about our families. Donna had a beautiful talent for writing. I wish she could have written a book. God bless, JJ
