      I am very sorry to hear of Donna’s passing. Donna and I go back to the year Melody was born, went to Cosmetology together and graduated in 1975. We kept in touch on and off over the years. Most recently in October. Donna will be missed, never forgotten. Much love, prayers, and God’s blessing to each of you.

    My Condolences,
    My Sister has written this poem for such a time like this.

    When I Go Away
    When I go away; Will you remember me,
    The one who brought forth many wonderful colors of life?
    There within you: the question lies unanswered: to open a book of life. To span the possibilities, of finding.
    I’m not really away; but live within the walls of your mind, which has many rooms to stay.
    I will be there to give you smiles and joy of memories I left you. Of Good Thoughts.
    I will never go away; As Long As You Remember….

    Please get this msg to Donna. I Love you with all my heart. I’m sad I cannot be there with you. God has brought us through so much together. We’ve trusted God with our lives. He healed our cancer. Trust Him now to do what’s best for you & your family. I’m Praying for that peace that passes all understanding. You are an important part of many lives & will be truly missed. We will have many good memories until we meet again in Heaven. So when you see Jesus, run to Him, sing ???? dance???? & praise Him! I will see you there my BFF. GOD is in control & HIS timing is PERFECT. “We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” 2 Cor 5:8 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Rev 21:4 All my love in Christ, Bonnie
