From the moment I met her, we had an instant connection. I loved her hilarious humor, her vivacious nature, and her passion for her loved ones and things she loved. Her laugh will be what I miss most. She loved my daughters and they loved her. I will miss her so very much. She was a treasure. Good Bye Cousin. May you R.I.P

Donna was always had that big smile on her face. I worked with Donna at NMCP and whenever I had problems with the computer system she would be the first I went to and with the big smile she would help me out. It was Donna, Joan Davis & my self shared the same birthday and would wish each a Happy Birthday. This year she didn’t respond and I just thought she was at one of the car races and forgot. I will always remember Donna, RIP September born friend
