"Hi Sweetheart,
This is my saddest day. One year ago I lost you. You will always be in my heart. I will always love you. We will be together again."

This tribute was added by Linda MacEachen on 15th April 2014

"Miss Donna, You'd be happy to know that I wore the skirt that reminds me most of YOU today.  It's the black/white one that has a black tulle' lining that you called me a "hussy" for wearing. You thought it was a slip and it was hanging from the bottom.  No offense taken since I knew your comment was all in fun.   I miss your sense of humor, sweet smile, and box of goodies that you kept at your desk for everyone to share.  Love and hugs to you!  Linda MacEachen"

"Thinking of you tonight Donna. I wish you could've met baby Tyler and given him all those kisses OUTSIDE of the womb in person! I'm sure he would have recognized them when he was born :)

I wish you could see what a great father Jason has become too. I couldn't have asked for a better partner in life. Thank you for raising such a great man! Extra hugs and kisses go out to you today mom. I think about you always. You've left all of us with a hole in our hearts since you've passed through the gates of heaven.

Love you."

This tribute was added by Jason Hardman on 15th April 2014

"Hi Mom. Miss you. Can't believe it's been a year.  Wish we could have your input on raising Tyler and compare him to me.  So many conversations we could have.  Thanks again for your sacrifices. Love you, Mom. I'll always have you in my heart."

"Hi Sweetheart,
I needed to tell you that your sister, Joanne, passed away suddenly on the 27th of February. In thinking about this, I'm sure that you already know this. I continue to miss you so much everyday. I'm hoping God will comfort Al. I am asking God to comfort your brother Bill also. He is missing both of his sisters so much. I will always think of you for guidance. I will love you always."

This tribute was added by Carol Vandergriff on 8th March 2014

"Hello my friend,
I am watching 20/20, they are talking about close friends.  I can't believe
what a friend would do to another friend.  I feel so blessed to have had
you in my life. We were lucky to have met in the generation that we did.  Even now you would look and say we were lucky and blessed.
I miss you so much and remember so many special times we shared.
The gully, Sight & Sound, St. James Church, Las Vegas, Libby's dress shop.  I can't tell you all I remember.  Shoup Park, the field where they built Hughes Jr. Hi., the time my parents were gone and we went to the store at midnight for no reason.  I miss you so much, I can't imagine
how much Larry misses you.   I was so blessed, I miss you so much.  Even though we didn't see each other often, I knew you would be there for me and me for you.  Know I love you and miss you so much.  I can't tell you all the things that pop into my head when I think of you and I.   I am so sorry we couldn't have had one more time together.  
Love always,

Carol"

is getting married 2/8/14, the last one to do it.  Love you very much."

"Happy Birthday Mom.
    I still think of you often.  I smile when I think of you pumping your fist and saying "Yeah!"  Hard to explain but, I can see it clear as day.  I also remember how you use to bring me close when I was younger and be stern yet loving at the same time so your message was clear and I knew what was important and will make sure I take the same tone when I need to with Tyler. ;-)  Thankfully, not for awhile...  Love you so much Mom."
