Donna was such a God-send in my mother, Lorene Cawley's, life. While mother was suffering from breast cancer, Donna was was constantly there to help mom. When mom needed to walk, Donna would walk her up and down mom's driveway until she was too tired. When she need companionship, Donna was there. What an angel!Thank you Donna for all you did to help my mother. You were a caring, true and faithful friend.
