My dearest cousin Donna... you lived with us in Puerto Rico and then in Miami and slept in my bed... I am devastated by your sudden passing and know you so did not want to leave this earth and your precious husband of 50 years, Dick, your beautiful boys Bob, Ken, and Mike... your amazing daughters in law and your precious and beautiful grandchildren who all loved you, as I did. You were a sister to Randee and I growing up and you always remained one to me. I love you and will miss you beyond words... I will do my best to be here for the whole family...I will be present for I know you knew I would be... I loved you so in life... and just as much in death... You occupy a very special place in my heart...for eternity... You were my hero...💔😢💐💞

To Dick and Family,
My condolences to you and your family. I was saddened to hear that Donna passed away. Donna was my closest cousin while growing up. I have fond memories of staying at her parent's home while I was in high school and also when she stayed at our home in Puerto Rico and Miami. I hope in time your pain will subside especially being together with your loving children and grandchildren.
