Char and I are saddened to hear of Donna's passing.
We often reminisce of our travels together and some of the fun times (Jeeping)
in Arizona and other spots out west. Our trip to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji
bring back many pleasant memories. Fun times at your place and at Seney and
Brevort in Michigan will always bring smiles. Donna playing her keyboard in the
desert among the cactus.

God bless -- Dave and Char

Harry, Bambi, and Chuck, I was deeply saddened to hear about Donna passing. I have very fond memories of her when you came to visit us when we were younger. I remember Donna as always looking beautiful and elegant. From the picture in the paper, it looks as though she continued looking the same as I remember her. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Harry and the Mitchell Family,
I want to extend my sincere sympathy to you all for the loss of your
dear wife and mother Donna. I was hoping and praying for the best,
but unfortunately that did not happen. The road ahead will be a little
rough and lonely as I''m see it now and hopefully in time it will smooth
out a bit and be a little more tolerable. My prayers and good wishes
are with you all
