  1. Donnie we are so sorry . We just got your message & was totally shocked. I thought she was doing fairly well last time we talked. I have missed her friendship & the good times we spent together. Couldn’t get her to get together the past couple years.. She will certainly be missed. She was a very special friend. Our prayers are with you all. We would like to attend the service if you would let us know.

  2. I will always remember my cute brown haired friend from 63 years ago. We have traveled different paths at times and each time we’ve found each other, we pick up as if we were never apart. You know how much I love you…. So until we meet again Sweetheart, RIP…. We’ll always be sisters in heart and never apart.
