Carla and I want to send our condolences to Donna's family. She was a great lady and ministered to my family greatly over the years.I don't have enough space to recount the ways. She was a great example of what a christian woman should be and a great example to us. Even though we won't be with you all for the services, please know we will be praying for the process and for those who are grieving. God bless you all.

Donna was such a neat lady. She taught me how to decorate cakes when I was in high school. Saw her a couple of years ago and we visited for hours. Loved her. Sorry for your loss
