Dear Debi Judy and Carla, Debi and Judy, my name is Vicki Knight. I never got to know you but I was in your Mom and Dad's wedding all those years ago as a flower girl. Your mom babysat for me as a kid and we are cousins, (I guess twice removed). I loved your Mom like a sister. We spoke on the phone often. Your Aunt Carla is a very special cousin. Donna and I always got together when she came to Las Vegas. Bob and Bobbi Jean were my aunt and uncle and Sharri and Sandi are my cousins. I have so many great memories of your mother all the years she lived in Topeka. I am so very sorry for your loss. Donna will be missed by everyone whose life she touched. She was a very special lady. She is in a better place now and livin' it up! She was doing what she loved to do. God is with you all. This too, shall pass. Love, Vicki

Donna's family, I met Donna years ago at Copps merchandising greeting cards. We got to know each other well. She was hired to work for the same company I was and we frequently worked together, went places together and visited often. We grew apart, but my I always thought about her and her family, including her dogs. Donna is with the Lord now and will see us all again someday. My sympathy to all of you on her tragic death.

So sorry to hear about your Mother...Judy. I haven't seen you in years, we went to school together, a long time ago. I heard about your Mother on facebook from Candy Miller. I know how hard it is to lose a parent, my Father passed away in 2007. All the memories you have will be with you always, and she will always be in your heart. My thoughts are with you and your family. Take care, Lori Schmidt

Debi,Dan,Vanessa,Kristoffer & Kate, Judy, Jimmy, Tiffany, Josh & Babe, You have been in my prayers since the accident. Thinking of all the things your Mom would say, do and her personality. Donna was never afraid to say what she thought (like about the color I painted my kitchen 2 months ago) but she always made us laugh too. Let's celebrate the life she had with us here and her eternal life with Christ now. Donna love the Lord and she is dancing up a storm. I pray for God to comfort you during this time. Love ya all. Kathy Friesen & David Schmidt

Myself and my wife MaryJane Spencer are the parents of Matthew Spencer who live next door to Donna. We have only met Donna twice when we were visiting but felt like we knew her all of our lives. Donna lived life to the fullest and will be missed by many people. We regret that due to the distance we can not attend.I dont know if Donna liked bagpipe music but I played a few verses of Amazing Grace on my pipes in her honor. With deepest regrets. Norman Spencer

Donna babe, I will miss you so much....the last time you were at the Surgery Center, we were all admiring your pretty toes!! The time before that, we hugged when you left, a visitor asked me if you were my mother....as I told you...I wish you had been. Now what will we do for your 85th birthday...oops, I mean 75th. You were the best volunteer ever, the patients and their families will miss you...especially ME!!! We got you to stop smoking, we supported you when you lost your son, then the breast cancer surgery, and how you loved to attend all our buffets at the surgery center. I can remember when you appeared in your flashing vest for your mo-ped(I told you not to wear that thing in bed). Now you are at peace.....I am so thankful that I got to know you...even though you never knew my real name....(NOT CAROL). BFF--best friends forever....or was it BESTEST friends forever....loved you girl.

Donna was one of the sweetest people to me at church (Joseph) and a friend and blessing to Nancy and I. She was warm and caring, had a heart of gold and was genuine and down to earth. She will be greatly missed by Nan and I and we loved her very much.
