Darlene and Tony,
Sorry for the loss of your mother, she was quite a lady, tough but a great sense of humor. Seems like my contact with her these last few years was with the ambulance but even when she was having difficult times she was always gracious and appreciative. We will miss her quick wit and gritty attitude. Our sympathy to you all.

Dona always put a smile on my face! You couldn't stop by for a quick chat ;) but you always left knowing the extra time was worth it! What a wonderful role model for the power of positive thinking! My sympathies to Darlene & Tony and all the family. I am sure the heavens aren't quiet with the reunion of the three sisters!

Dona was always an enjoyable person to visit, and you always stayed longer than you had planned. She was proud of her yard, her gardens, and her family. Sorry to hear the news.

I was always impressed with Dona's good humour, no nonsense attitude and independent spirit. She was a great person to know and I express my sympathies to her family.
