Aunt Donna was one of the nicest people you will ever meet. A constant companion to her gregarious husband Dick, our families shared many Christmas eves together when we were growing up. She was very generous with the gifts she gave, maybe even giving more than she had at times. Family was her life; she happily shared stories about hers and always wanted to know about your life and family. She and Dick always stopped by to say hello when I came home from school, Minnesota, or Oregon. So nice to have been a part of the life of such a caring, kind, and happy person.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was such a lovely person. I remember her not only from coming to your house when we were growing up but I also worked with her at Sears. She was always so nice to everyone. I know how much you will miss her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
