Post a Condolence

I am so sorry Tom & family to just learn of Donna’s passing. I remember bowling with Donna back in the old days. I actually met Donna through my parents, Bill & Irene Carey. I know they had lots of fun with you both & enjoyed Donna’s great sense of humor. My deepest sympathy.

I knew Donna well and she will be missed by all who knew and loved her. I worked at Morgan Building Maintenance for 17 years and they have always been family to me. Donna was a wonderful person and loved her family deeply. I cannot make her service but please know my thoughts and prayers are with Tom and the entire family.

I knew Donna and worked with her for many years. she was always full of laughter and good spirited. This is a quote I found about one who loves Animals.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”

Her soul is at peace with the Lord.
