    Donna was a true friend. The day I met her, when she first started volunteering at Cambrie’s Little Boxes, I just knew we would be great friends. She was so kind, she always had a smile for you. Her life stood for something. When she talked about her family, she was so very proud of each one of them. She never complained about a thing although she could have as her previous illness with cancer were not easy. She will be missed by us all but we are all better people for having known her. Rest my dear friend….you have worked so hard. Our sympathies to the family at this time. Remember what a great Mom, Sister, Grandmother and Greatgrandmother you had with fondness. She will be watching over you all.
