This memorial website was created in memory of my wife of 18 years, Donna Marie Meyers who passed on March 19th, 2017 after a long battle with Multiple Sclerosis. My heart will never be the same. It’s my hope that all who knew her will use this website to share their stories and memories of Donna and celebrate her life. May sharing our memories with each other help to mend the holes in our hearts that she left behind. 

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday April 1st at 1:30pm. at Cadillac Memorial Gardens East Cemetery. Located at 38425 Garfield Rd, Charter Twp of Clinton, MI 48038. The service will be held in the Oak Chapel. Casual attire is preferred or whatever makes you comfortable. No flowers please. Instead use that money to get yourself a gift from us or use it for a random act of kindness. If you choose to, you can even post what you decided to do on this website as a tribute to Donna. It would warm both our hearts. A reception will immediately follow at a separate location. Directions will be available for everyone at the service.

She was loved by all, and will be greatly missed. Donna was a passionate giver and helped so many in so many ways. She had a way of leaving an impression on you, even on those that she just briefly met. Her fighting spirit was inspirational. Years ago even though Donna had progressive MS at the time, she beat cancer that was found throughout most of her head. I also think it's fair to say that  Donna beat MS. It may have been what caused her death but she never let it change who she was or let it dampen her spirit. I called her my "tough stuff" cause she never stopped fighting. She was the only person I know that could get "kicked out" of Hospice! They transferred her into Palliative Care for a few months before she was placed back into Hospice. Her last 3 1/2 years were spent in a hospital bed in our living room. However she still had a smile for everyone that came through our door and continued to give what she could wherever there was a need.

My dear sister, I miss you so much! All of our childhood memories keep flooding my head lately. I miss mom and Dad so much too! I just can't believe that mom and dad, and all of my siblings are in heaven, and there is only Peggy and I left on earth. It brings me peace to know that you are all together. I have a beautiful grandson, who just turned 2, and a sweet little granddaughter coming in December. You would be so proud of Jeff, because he's such a great Daddy! Keep dancing in heaven, since you have your happy feet back! I miss you all! xoxo

As I look back three years three years in disbelief
My heart is still full of so much grief

Today I’ll celebrate the freedom you gained
From this crazy world where I still remain

Always and forever ❤️

Im celebrating your birthday today
and wishing you were here.
A walk in the park, a seat by the lake
enjoying memories I’ll always hold dear.
Another year has now passed
you would have been 63.
But you’re no longer feeling pain
and your soul is now running free.

Happy Birthday Sweetheart
You would’ve been 62 today
Thankful for the years we had
Just wish God never took you away
Memories of your sweet smile
Still melt my broken heart
This day will always be special
Like you’ve been right from the start

It was a year ago today

When my heart began to bleed
When you began your journey home
And your soul was once again freed

I’m thankful you no longer bear the cost
Your wings lifted you from the pain
Until I'm with you again my heart will remain lost

It was a year ago today

This year I wrote Santa a letter
but its Christmas & you weren't under my tree
I tried my best to be good this year
but I guess he just didn't agree
I will hold the gift of your love in my heart
until once again your here next to me

Hi Honey it's me again
I Just can't seem to Sleep. 
I've tried everything I can
But these wounds are just too deep

When I Close my eyes
I see your beautiful face.
I always try to be strong
But end up a Basket-case

I Miss the way u looked at me
And the kindness in your touch
I miss your laugh, your love
Babe I miss u so so Much

My mind runs through your memory
as my tears hit the floor
I pray "God take my heart"
I just Don't want to hurt anymore

Happy Anniversary Sweetheart! Today is our special day. I know how hard you tried to make it to this day. And I believe you did, for you will always be right here in my heart and soul! I can't believe it's been 5 weeks! Still doesn't seem real. So if you find a way to sneak back home, my arms are still wide open waiting for the day I can hold you again and hoping this is all a dream. Always & Forever

Donna, I believe that the stars that shine so bright, are the openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know that they are happy. I know that you are shining down on us, and dancing once again. You are always in my heart! Your baby sister........xoxo

Auntie D when I find enough strength (maybe you can lend me some of yours, because you no doubt were the strongest person not only I know but who ANYONE KNOWS!!) I will write MORE on this about what a true gift you were to this world and always will be. You most definitely left your footprints here. And eventually I will follow them all the way up to be with you again. I LOVE and MISS you every second of every hour of every day!! Love, Bunnynose

Nearly twenty five years ago a super cute gal, with an amazing personality and a killer smile asked a coworker who did her hair. As fate would have it Donna called to make an appointment with me. She was a dedicated client and friend of mine ever since. I sure would look forward to seeing her. She was the type of client who the time would pass by so fast, with never enough time to catch up. We would thoroughly enjoy each others conversation. Anyone who knew sweets Donna knows she was genuinely caring and concerned about anyone she loved. She knew me through my children being born, all the way until now with my first born getting married. She was a huge support to me when I was caring for my dying mother struggling with cancer. I'll always remember the strength she gave me. Even after she could not come to see me for her hair anymore, because she was bed ridden, we still did our best to make it work. And work it did. I'm so grateful and feel honored to be there for her. I remember the day many years ago when she could'nt wait to tell me she had met someone very special. What a sparkle she had in her eye when she shared the news that she had met her soul mate Donna S. I never saw her quite this happy.
She has been such an inspiration of what strength and fight really means., She is the strongest person I know. And her dear wife Donna was the pillars she needed to hold her up and keep her going for so many years. The dear Lord was not going to take Donna until her work was done here on earth. Not until she touched as many lives as she was destined to touch. She will truly be forever missed in MY heart. I still here her voice saying on my recorder "Hi Maryann...how ya doing honey!" And never forgetting to say hi to my husband, my two daughters and my dog Bailey too! Love you and miss you forever Donna!!! Thank you for all you taught me about living life with a positive attitude no matter what you are dealt with! May your memory be eternal.
