    Words cannot my sorrow for your family. You have lost your mom and she was such a sweet person. Growing up I remember going to visit aunt sis in the Beaumont area and always a wonderful time. They lived in a trailer and sometimes at oil well site, that was an adventure. Again our prayers for your lost. Moms are so special.

    David and kids, You know that I have known your mom for the better part of my life. I can remember going down to where the Lewis' lived when there use to be a small trailer park behind the Valero station in Silsbee, then when they moved onto Maxwell Dr. I watched your mom grow from a young girl to a young lady, a wife and then a mother. She was a wonderful woman, I don't think I ever saw her without a smile. She brightened the lives of many. Her legacy is 3 GREAT kids. Don't be sad because she is gone, be happy with the life she had and the life she gave you. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers during this time, be strong as she would want you to be.....Bob

    When you know this family, it’s hard not to love them. Donna was very much the center of their household and THE kindest person. Her smile lit up a room and her laughter was one of a kind. You just couldn’t help but laugh once she got started! The love and kindness she showed to me whenever she saw me will be missed. I will be praying for you David, Justin, Candice and Jana... because I know if my heart is saddened that yours is ten times more so. Please reach out if you need anything.

    I'm so sorry to hear about Donna's passing. She was such a sweet person and I'm so proud to call her my cousin. She will truly be missed. Her mom and dad were wonderful. May the Lord wrap His loving arms around her family. Love you all. ♥
