To my 2nd Cousin Donna whom was like an Aunt to me, She and Paul would let me come over and stay for weeks at a time when I was growing up as a kid and a young teenager, And I will never forget the times I got to spend with them and a lot of the things and life skills they were able to teach me as my Dad was going threw a lot of medical issues, They will be missed and I am glad that I got to see her last summer, After looking for her for many years, I just wish I would have gotten to see her more then the couple times that I stopped to see her when she was in the nursing home off of State Rt. 331

So may you Rest in Peace and thank You and Paul for being in my life when I was young, And may God Bless you in your new life, In Jesus name AMEN.

So sorry for Donna’s passing. She was such a nice lady. I will always remember her hats and how she would dress up for church. One year she gave all the ladies at church these beautiful scarfs. She is safe with the Lord now. Prayers
