I'm so sorry for your loss. Donella was one of the sweetest and kindness people I know as well as beautiful inside and out. I was blessed to have known her. God bless you all and my prayers that you find comfort in knowing she is with her Lord.

Donella and I grew up together along with Bonnie on Lloyd street. She, Bonnie and walked a million miles together walking to school and playing all day long when were just kids. Even when I moved to Orlando fl in 1970 she and keep in touch. Every year I would call her on her birthday to tell her hey and that I loved her. to this day I still have a picture of her Bonnie and me when we were just 5 years old. I She was a very special person in everyway and will truly missed. She is with God now and we all will see her when we get to heaven. Love to all my prayers are with all.
