How does one sum up a lifetime of friendship with Donna? We have know each other since kindergarten. So many happy memories! School, church, Sunday School, Brownies, Girl Scouts (including Girl Scout Camp) ....sleeping in tents with “ granddaddy long legs” spiders crawling over us during the night. Donna and I would end up on the same cot because we were horrified of the spiders. Giggly little girl’s birthday parties, sleepovers that included conversations about our latest heart throbs! Dreams of weddings, having a family, wondering just what that would be like.

Then, getting married to our high school sweethearts and going on with our lives. Now....all of a sudden we are the older generation. Something Donna and I talked about often, wondering how did we get this old! I was so blessed to have Donna as a special friend . We always knew we loved each other, even if we did not connect that often. She was a very special lady who loved all of her family dearly! She will be so missed by all of us. 🙏❤️
