    Mary, please accept my sincere condolences. You know that I would attend your mother’s upcoming services if I was there and not in Arizona for the winter. I will make a donation to the Cancer Society at the address you provided. I’ll be thinking of you during these trying times.

    We were so sorry to hear that Donna had passed away. She was a wonderful woman who had made all our family so welcome on our many visits to her home for dinner whilst we would be on holidays in Chicago. Nothing was ever too much to her and she showed particular kindness to our parents on every occasion they visited Chicago. She will be sorely missed. The only silver lining is that she and Jack are once again together which feels right.

    While we weep & offer our condolences for Donna, let’s remember she is now “in a better place”. . . in heaven with her Mom, Dad, Sisters, Husband, all the Angels & Saints, and Our Beloved Lord Jesus. . . where, one day, we all hope to be! Donna was a gentle, kind, loving woman who always greeted us with her winning smile. We loved Donna and will miss her terribly in our lives. Rest well, Donna! I will pray for you. We shall meet again!
