    Donna and my mom were true golden girls when I was young. What I remember most about Donna is the way she loved on her girls. She was a great mother and friend to my mom. Some of my fondest memories started with Deborah and Danielle as “cousins” and as fellow “Firebirds” and I am forever grateful for Donna allowing us to build those bonds. I’m praying for all the family during this time. Sending my love to my “cousins” and I really wish I could be home to support you during this time.
