Dear sweet Donna,
Although it's been 10 years since that dreadful day, it still feels like it was yesterday. When I heard the news of what happened to you it was such a shock. Just the thought of the brutal manner in which you had to endure is unthinkable. This never should have happened to you. Knowing that you are safely in the arms of our LORD is comforting.
You were such a beautiful person with a great and bubbly personality, friendly & funny too. You always took the time to chat with me when you came over with the mail from the W/C to the M/U when I was in tower #1. A pleasure to have known you.
+++ Rest in peace sweet Donna. You will always be remembered by so many!!!
