    I am so very sorry to hear of Donna's passing. It was my pleasure to get to know her when I taught Clete in kindergarten. She was always so sweet and kind. Love and prayers to her family

    Donna, such a beautiful person, we so looked forward to your visits to Liverpool, with afternoons spent sharing memories in Broadway. You were so elegant. Sleep peacefully now. Deepest sympathy to you all xx

    " Then I heard a voice from heaven say, "Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Yes," says the Spirit, "they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them." Rev. 14:13. Thank you friend for living a beautiful witness before all of us my friend. See you in the morning.

    There were so many things to admire about Donna. She had a personality larger than life. Her ability to establish a rapport with children of all ages was a gift. They all loved her. We've lost a beautiful lady who will leave a void to family and friends alike. She was taken way too soon but God has been plans for her. She's walking with him now, a beautiful Angel, free from her pain and suffering. To Donna's mother, father, siblings, and especially to her sons Jonathan, Clete, and Colin my heart hurts for you. May God wrap his arms around you and comfort you with precious memories as you face the coming days. Much love. to you all. Rest in peace Donna.

    Donna embarked on a valiant and graceful battle against her cancer in February. Despite all her efforts it was a battle she could not win. She was an amazing person, an inspiration to all. She will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace dear friend. You are missed already .

    Donna and I attended middle and high school together. We both tried out and played the same instrument in the Red Hussars Drum and Bugle Corp. It has been within in the past couple of years that we’ve managed to reconnect and renew our friendship. I offer my prayers of condolences and strength to her 3 sons, her parents, siblings, love ones, and friends. God grant her eternal soul rest with our Heavenly Father.

    I was so fortunate to have good people like the Sclerandi family living across the street from me, and Colin was always a joy. Prayers.
