|To Donnas' family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I worked with Donna a few years ago in admitting. Her and I worked nights together side by side for months. She loved you all so very much. The stories she would share, she would light up with excitement. She was was so proud of each of you. She is surely going to be missed. Hearing her laughter. But knowing that she is at peace helps with our pain of her departure. Again, I am so very sorry for your loss. She was a very special lady.|
