I am so sorry for the loss of such a beautiful person. Donney is one of my favorite an most beautiful first cousins. I have always admired her. Wish we could have spent more time together, life is so short, and we get so busy with the hustle and bustle of our lives, time passes so fast. My sympathy to all her family. She was truly a lady, I loved her.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Donney tried to teach me how to roller skate on the sidewalk in Madison-never did learn to stand up on those things. I remember a sleep-over at her house (Steifeltown-or at least close by) when we were in school. Many school memories-much love to all the family.
