Please accept our heart felt condolences. We never met Donna, but she looks like a lovely woman. It is so sad that she had to suffer so much in her last years. She is now free to create and paint the sky blue in heaven. You will miss her earthly presence, but will keep her in your memories. We will think of you on the beach on Mar 27 celebrating her life. HUGS!
