Sincere condolences to all of Donna's family and friends. She was a wonderful prayer warrior for her "beach girls," not only when we were traveling, but in our daily lives. One knew she didn't just say she would pray, one knew she really did it. Donna was always encouraging and uplifting to others regardless of her own pain and difficulties. Her faith in Jesus was secure and she was ready anytime to meet her Lord. We are all the richer for her being our friend. Rest in peace.
