    My heart is broken. But I know she is rejoicing with her mom and brother together again! My prayers go out to her family. We had some good times back in the day! Mustang riding and Bob Seger playing. I will cherish those memories forever! Save a place for us. Fly high my friend till we meet again!

    Matthew 5:6 KJV
    Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
    Aunt Donna will be missed but we will see her again in Heaven. We will be praying for the Orta family.
