Dana gave me the great privilege to provide childcare to her twin boys when they were newborns. She was a great Mom and all she wanted in life was to have several kids and she devoted her life to them. She will be greatly missed!

I am so sorry for this tragic loss. I taught one of the boys and I just admired what a great mom she was and how much she loved her kids. I know this leaves a huge hole in the hearts that I’m praying God can help heal.
