What can I say; my mother was one of the kindest, most caring people in the world. She lived her life solely for her kids. Mom not only loved us, she loved all our friends. The refrigerator was always stocked, and any kid in the neighborhood knew they could come in, eat, and make themselves at home. Mom loved having a house full of kids. Often times, â€œsleepoversâ€ exceeded the typical amount of children. One summer, there were about 22 kids total sleeping in various rooms of the house. Luckily, we lived in a big Victorian house in Waxahachie.
Mom was a sounding board and confidant. She enjoyed mentoring peers, her children, and all of her childrenâ€™s friends. I think when most people think of or remember â€œDonnaâ€ the will think of her bright smile, talking with her hands, and her homemade lasagna. Mom loved to cook. Her recipe book is priceless.
Mom is going to be greatly missed. She was loved by all. She had a way of making everyone feel special, feel loved, and feel important. She was my best friend, my confidant, my biggest fan, my loving mom!
Donna was a special person. As a “younger” cousin, I always looked up to her. She was always sweet, caring, and fun to be around.
Prayers are out to all famiy and friends ~ Donna was a light at the end of the tunnel, she had a crown on her head and a star in her heart ! Thanks for your friendship !
Donna was always there for her friends. I always knew no matter what I could depend on her love and support. She was filled with kindness and always willing to lend a helping hand. She left this Earth way too soon but there is no doubt she is now with Jesus. I can just imagine her sparking eyes and sweet, sweet smile as He welcomed her home. she will be missed
I love you Gammie I am going to miss you.
I love you Gammie I am going to miss you
My Cousin, My Friend, We talked every week on my way home from work. You listened to me and made me laugh. I will miss you so much, but will see you again. I will still be talking to you on my way home, so be listening. Love you so much.
My heart and condolences go out to you and your family. May God continue to give your family strength during this time.
My dear friend Donna…..we met as pre-schoolers in Amarillo and our paths kept crossing over these many years. I watched Monica grow up and we are lucky to be Ryann’s godparents. I’ll never be able to make your famous meatloaf or tuna/olive spread, but I’ll remember the good times we had and the memories we shared. You were the ‘wind beneath my wings’.
