  1. Your family have been so blessed to have been part of Donna’s life. She was such a kind caring person and I know she will be sadly missed.

    I am a relative of some sort . Rick Buerk could explain how. So, even though I did not see her often, I would always have a wonderful conversation when we met in the stores. She was a lovely lady. Heaven has a new angel. My sincere condolences.

  2. Sending you all big hugs, lots of love and prayers🙏. So happy for all your wonderful memories with her! May they bring you comfort and peace💕
