ForeverMissed

The sunshine dimmed April 23 as the world lost one of its shining lights. Donna Marie Weaver, a longtime Bay Area real estate professional, succumbed to her three-year fight with a rare form of breast cancer and passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by family. She was 42.

She is survived by her dedicated husband of 21 years, Johnie Allen Weaver; brother John McCreadie of Auburn, Calif; sister Theresa Snyder of Modesto, Calif; and nephews and nieces, including her latest niece and namesake – Chloe Donnamarie Weaver – who was born March 24.

Family and friends will forever remember Donna for her positive spirit that was always accompanied with a luminescent smile; her desire to always put others ahead of herself; and her sensitive honesty and sensible, well-heeled advice that others always sought from her. She was a trusted realtor who specialized in escrow management, respected by colleagues and clients alike.

In the words of one friend: “You taught us all a lot about love, life and friendship. You always kept it real . . . You were one of a kind!”

Donna Marie McCreadie was born Oct. 7, 1969 at Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley and grew up in Hayward. She graduated from Mt. Eden High School in 1987. Her parents – James and Mary McCreadie  – preceded her in death. She always had a special place in her heart for dogs, and is survived by her beloved American Eskimo, Jada.

While contributions to organizations to help combat breast cancer are always appreciated, Donna requested remembrance contributions be made to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). If you are so inspired, contributions can be made by clicking here.

Just checking in to say I love you Donna. You've been on mind, always are. I just looked through the pictures here and I just miss your smile. I read a book about old girlfriends and brought back so many memories of us and all the times we laughed and cried, but really mostly laughed. I'm crying now because I miss you, but I will remember the laughter most.

Hi Auntie Donna! Boy do I miss saying those words from time to time! It's just one of those days today where you crossed my mind and now I can't stop thinking of you. I so badly wish you were here so we could all get together and talk and laugh. And more importantly just see you. Three years later and we all still miss you! Love you aunt Donna!

Donna, It has been three long years without you. It has been so long but seems like yesterday you were here with me. I still think of you continuously and miss you terribly. You were an amazing person and the world is not the same without you in it! I still am amazed when I think of how graciously you handled the disease that ended your life. You were so much stronger than I could have ever imagined. Even though it makes me breakdown still, I am so thankful to have all the pictures of you to remind me of the great times we had. My life will never be the same. Love Always..........

Good morning Johnie,

I hope this finds you doing well. Today is a special day. Donna is always on my mind. I miss her so much. I hope you and work are doing well. Are you back to biking? Remember Donna is with you always. How are doing the online dating? Donna would like you to do that. I have been swimming a lot. I swam 100 laps twice when I was up in Alaska helping my daughter. Love and best wishes, Louise

Donna, I felt time stop on the day you past and I am taken back to that moment from time to time and I still have to ask myself, did that moment really happen? Yet here we are, at what would have been your 45th birthday and I sit here alone faced with the realization that in fact, that moment did happen. My mind seems to not comprehend time in the same way it did when you were here. Time seems so vague, meaningless. But today I will remember that beautiful smile, wonderful laugh, and recall what it was like to have you here to celebrate with. I miss you more than words can say.

Happy Birthday Donna, it is true you are missed by someone everyday. There are many times when the thought of you crosses my mind and brings a smile to my face or a belly laugh. I miss you , I know your loved ones also miss you and the world sure could use you!!!

Two years ago you were taken away from us. You are truly missed each and everyday that goes by. Your smile would light up any room you were in. I miss our talks and hearing your laugh. I was very lucky to have you as my special friend. Love you and miss you always.

It has been two long years since you were taken from us. I miss our conversations that could go on for hours and your beautiful smile. You were an amazing friend, wife, aunt and sister and will live forever in all of our hearts! Love You!!

Today I celebrate Donna Marie Day. I have missed my sister for each of the 730 days that have passed since we lost her in 2012. So many missed talks, Facebook postings and belly laughs. That's 17,520 hours without Donna's smile, sound advice and warm friendship. Yet, all this time has not filled the hole in my life and my heart: I so miss the sound of her voice and her sarcastic spirit. Most of all, though, I miss her boundless capacity to love. Happy Donna Marie Day . . .

Donna Marie I miss you terribly. Two years past now and you remain in my heart and thoughts everyday. I still talk to you (pretty regularly actually), because I miss your laugh, your wisdom and courage. I am terrible with the spoken word, never as fast as you or as good with the comebacks, the sarcasm, the one liners. And so... me answering myself is pathetic. I still yearn for the real thing.

Donna, my forever friend, I will miss you forever. I can't help but think back to almost 40 years ago and I imagine you with your pink polyester pantsuit in kindergarten (the girl I didn't want to like because you were so frilly and cute and how I loved you anyway) and those giant, smiling, mischievous blue eyes and I just have to believe those eyes are still smiling somewhere.

Donna, today would have been our 23rd wedding anniversary. It was a rainy day just like we used to enjoy together, bundled up and listening to the rain. I chose to spend the day alone, painfully aware of the day but keeping busy trying to keep the sadness at bay. But each time I passed your picture in the hallway the pain would hit me a little harder. I still miss you terribly. Even more so on our special days without you here. Happy Anniversary to the best wife ever! All my Love.

So strange....was thinking of you yesterday and on Friday...forgot about your b-day, but life always brings you into focus. The not so subtle advice you would sometimes give, your spot on assessment of the most minute of situations that most people would blow out of proportion.... I miss you, the world misses you and I know Johnie misses you...but just the thought of you brings a smile

Dearest Donna, You are still constantly on my mind, day in and day out. When life gets tough it kills me not having you here to talk to and I feel lost all over again. All I can do is think WWDD. With the help of family and friends I keep moving through life. I have pretty much accepted that you are not coming back but sometimes I still hope you might show up to make my life special again.

Hi Donna, I watched my wife die slowly with cancer for thirty months. Annie taught me so much through the journey. I believe there's more to life than death. It makes no sense that people like you, who did so much for others could just pass on. I believe with every fiber in my body that you're and Angel, as is Annie, and one day you and your beloved Johnie will meet again. "I Believe"

It is so hard to believe that a year has gone by since you were taken from us...Yet my heart hurts as much as it did a year ago. I miss your beautiful smile and ever saving wisdom! You were so special to so many people and I know that I am not alone in my loss. Miss and love you my friend.

Dearest Donna, I can't believe it has been a year since you were taken from us. It has certainly been the hardest year of my life. Again and again I find myself yearning for your touch, your voice, and your wisdom. I would love to see your beautiful smile again. You truly made my life what it was. I still feel lost without you, but am trying to carry on and make you proud. Forever yours.

One year later, I long to see your face pop up on my ringing phone. I so miss our talks, the texts and emails. I miss you at our family gatherings. Birthdays, Christmas' and summer cocktails by the pool are now just memories with you. Precious memories. I miss you so much, little sister. I long for your laughter and your spirit. And I miss the sound of your voice saying, "I love you.

Wow, I cannot believe it has been a year. There have been many times this past year that I wish I could have picked up the phone, to ask a question,( you always had the best most common sense answers) or to share a little industry gossip ( been a lot of that lately and I'll bet it not only has astonished but really cracked you up....wink wink hahahahaha).Im honored to have been your friend

Hi Donna and Johnie.......was thinking of you today as I was driving around and drove through some familiar neighborhoods from the old adobe days....couldn't help but see your smile as I went through the different"farms". Johnie, Donna was as much in love with you as the first day you met if not more and I am sure that she is watching over you everyday. That is one great angel you've got

My heart is breaking for you all, but couldn't hold back the tears reading Bob Harrison's tribute, there are no words to heal a shattered heart and I pray Donna will wrap her angel wings around you Johnny so you can feel her presence and feel your beautiful love together again xx

Hi Donna, your Johnny is really struggling without you. I believe in heaven and believe you are an "Angel" and probably friends with my wife Annie; she's an angel too. Between the two of you, keep an eye on Johnny. I've recently been there, and know and understand his pain. It's relentless, and folks come and go, but he's locked in a state of being. Hard to escape, but he will. I believe

Our first Christmas without you, Donna, has been incomprehensible. While the halls were all decked, they seemed empty without your smile lighting up the room, without your laughter trailing down the hall and without your clever quips to warm our souls. You will forever be our missing gift during the holidays. We all miss you so very much.

Missing you.....

April 24, 2013

It doesn't seem like it has been a year since you left this world to go to a better place.  If I didn't truly believe that I was going to see you again this would be so much harder.  The hardest part of you not being here is knowing how much pain Johnie is in.  You were and are his world.  You touched so many lives in such a deep way that sometimes we get lost in the chasm left behind by your passing. I love and miss you and look forward to the day we can chat and ponder others...

Picture in my Tool Box

February 16, 2013

This picture was taken at a VIP real estate meeting in May 1990. It was sent to Donna as a postcard in the mail. I loved it from the moment it came in the mail. I was so proud of her. I took it to work and kept it in my tool box ever since. It was torn and scratched after 23 years so I had to photo shop it up so it looks presentable.

August 5, 2012

I remeber she was having trouble walking this day, she had her cane with her I believe, and she still came out to see me! Love her for that!
