Although I did not know Donna personally, we were both members of the AHS Class of 1966. I do remember her and wanted to offer my sincere condolences to your family.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. When we lose someone in death, the pain, the grief and the feeling of helplessness can seem unbearable. The Bible promise: "God is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." The Bible also says: "Throw your burden on God and he will sustain you." (Psalm 34:18 and 55:22) I hope this message offers comfort in your time of sadness.
