Donna was the beautician I first found when we moved here 23 years ago and I'm so happy to have also found a wonderful friend in her. Her kindness, common sense and willingness to please made any time spent with her a delight! She will be missed, but I know her soul will always be with us. I'm so sorry for her loss and wish comfort and peace to all her loved ones. Margaret Law
