I am so sorry for the loss of my dear friend. I pray for the comfort that only God can provide to all of you children and her entire family. Donna and Ron and I had many special memories together and most of them were full of laughter and all of them are full of love. FLY HIGH,MY FRIEND, FLY HIGH! R.I.P. in the arms of our Lord and by the side of your precious husband, Ron.

We were neighbors for a very long time. It was never the same when Ron and Donna moved away.
I spoke with her briefly before her passing and will be forever grateful for that.
We are happy knowing she is with her beloved husband Ron.
Fly high Donna <3

I knew Donna when we were kids living in Porterville Il. Her brother Donald and I played together as kids. It’s hard to believe she is gone. I’m so sorry for the family.
