Condolence: Donna my dear cousin,
You are forever in my heart. You always treated me like a princess. You showed me the Texas spirit by showing me booming TX fireworks, taking me to Dairy Queen many times, and taking me rafting in the San Antonio river. These are just a few childhood memories that were pretty special to this So Cal raised girl. I will never forget how you spoiled me at family reunions in Crockett, and made me put a quarter in my shoe when we went to San Francisco. This was the just in case we got separated, and I would have to call someone back when pay phones were the in-thing. You always looked out for me, and I know you are doing just that above, too. Your smile was infectious, and your hugs so warm. This is so hard, and you meant the world to me & my father. I will see you again sometime. I love you so much. XOXO, Belle
Condolence: Donnie - sorry you are gone - you were my rock when my dad passed and a fierce Words with Friends opponent. Loved your sense of humor and fighting spirit and the special relationship between you and Syd my special Mom. Please give Dad a hug I'm sure you two are up there creating shenanigans. Love and Condolences to all the special folks you left behind. Trice
Condolence: From almost the first moment I met Donna when she came to work at Valero, we developed a close friendship and bond that has not been broken since. I concur with others who have said she was the sweetest, most loving person I've ever known. She wrote the most encouraging, thoughtful words in her notes and birthday cards.
She found such peace and happiness in her marriage to Greg, whose family I have known my whole life. Thank you Greg for loving and taking such good care of her.
We will all miss her sweet gentle spirit in our lives.
Condolence: A beloved sister from another life has passed
and I will be the sadder.
Though anyone that knew her truly,
knows that she would have no tears for her.
She is "more than halfway now",
waiting for her loved ones with open arms yet,
as she always in life.
Adios Donna June.
Condolence: Well done, Aunt Donnie. Well done. That was a life well lived. You always hugged me a second or two longer than anyone. And I always knew it was because you wanted to show me how much you loved me. We will miss you more than you know. You will be carried in all of our hearts forever.
Condolence: Syd, what a beautiful tribute to Donnie. She was the best kind of friend a girl could ask for and her hugs were second to none. We will miss her always and hold sweet memories close to our hearts. With love to all of her precious family.
Condolence: My sweet sister. I miss her so much. She always loved me the best, no matter what. She loved both my husbands, adored my child, & still had love to share from coast to coast. She smiled at everybody. She held me together many times when I couldn’t do it alone.
All her illnesses she took in stride, doing what she had to to get better. No complaints or “why me”. Her positivty was better than anyone I ever met. She genuinely liked people, & cared what happened to them. We had wonderful family trips but just a plain visit was good too. I can never express my unending gratitude for my sister.
