Sweet Donna such a kind person in all circumstances. I will miss her smile and acceptance of me. When my mother died 8 years ago this poem gave me solace and hope it will help you. ".WHEN SOMEONE YOU LOVE BECOMES A MEMORY THAT MEMORY BECOMES A TREASURE" My fondest and tenderest memory that I hold dearest to my heart is when our granddaughter Madison was born. Stephanie allowed Gagam and I to be present and of course she and I stood right behind the doctor we just had to watch everything. Just as her head began to show, the doctor moved over so se could watch our Madison being born. Gagam and I hold each other tight, and at that moment we jumped up and down like little girls with excitement. This moment is my most treasured of all. I will miss such a wonderful lwoman that was kind to me during difficult moments.

I know how difficult to loose a mother at such a young age. When my mom died 8 years ago this poem was given to me and I treasure the thought. It is my prayer that it will ease your sorrow. "WHEN SOMEONE YOU LOOSE BECOMES A MEMORY THEIR MEMORY BECOMES A TREASURE" My sweetest memory of Donna that is tender to my heart, I shall never forget.. Stephany allowed Donna and I to be present when our prescious Madison was born.. Donna and of course wanted to watch so we stood just behind the doctor holding hands tight as could be. As Madison's head began to show the doctor moved over enough for Donna and I to watch when she was born, both Donna and I were jumping up and down like little girls. That moment I cherish more than anything. Thank you lovely Donna for your love and kindness to me.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many good memories of the Thomas family household growing up on Patterson avenue in ogden. Donna was such a kind and compassionate lady. She made an awesome pineapple cake. I am so sorry for your loss. Her spirit will definitely be missed.
