    Donna "guarded" the civic center hall and we chatted each time I passed. Just a sentence or two at a time, I learned how she loved her husband and family, with a focus on those grandchildren. Donna selected a purple vase for me as a gift and I love it just as much as she thought I would. She will be missed.

    My wife and I have many great memories of Good Times spent with Donna and Ronnie. Donna was always good with a listening ear and an encouraging word. My wife and I will cherish the times we spent visiting in their home, going out to eat or spending time with them at the Lake. Rest In Peace, Donna, Your Work on Earth is Done..

    To Ronnie, Ryan, Aaron, Leah and Sarah, we extended our love and sincerest of condolences to you. We are sorry that we are unable to be with you and know that you are in our thoughts and our prayers.

    With Blessings and Love,

    Greg and Sharla Broussard

    So devastated that Donna lost her long, hard battle with cancer! She was such a trooper and inspiration to all that knew her! Much love, sympathy & many prayers for Ronnie & boys and families. Such a loss to Quota International of Southeast Texas and our entire community!
