Kelly and family,
I'm so sorry for your loss. Kelly we were talking the other day. You didnt come to work the next day so I wondered what was up. She is at peace and in no more pain. I'm so sorry I couldnt make it to the funeral home. I'm praying for you and your family, in your my thoughts as well. You need to talk or hang out, just let me know.

It is with a heavy heart that we are sending this message to Howie and to Donna’s children and grandchildren. Donna was a very intense lady and did everything with gusto. Donna was a large part of Willie’s life and the two families spent a lot of time together when all of their children were little. Donna had a strong presence and she will be missed by all. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Donna’s family.

Kelly and family, I am so sorry to hear of your moms passing. I lost my mom three weeks ago and I feel for all of you. Losing your mom is probably the biggest heartache you will ever bare. My heart breaks for you.
