  1. Dan Man, It’s never easy to say anything that would help you now, in your time of grief. Donna was one of the good ones. Working with her at Napier, over those many years, you get know a person, and we will miss her dearly. I feel for you, and know that you are a better person because of her. I don’t know what else to say, except that I’ll see you around. Take care Dan! Big C

  4. Dear Dan and Family, There is nothing I can say or do that can eliminate your sorrow. Donna was truly a beautiful person and one who I am honored to consider a friend. She will be truly missed by all of us who had the pleasure of knowing her. Dan, we have known each other for many years. You have always shown me great respect. For this I am truly grateful. I have always considered you a friend. My job as Warehouse Supervisor was made alot easier because of you. You were always someone who I could trust and rely on. I am deeply saddened by Donna’s passing, she was also a good friend to me. I will always have great memories of her. If there is anything that I can ever do for you please know that I will always do my best for you. Hang in there my friend! Most Sincerely, Paul Nichols

  5. Dear Dan, I was so sorry to hear about Donna. Although I only met her once, I always remembered her as one of the sweetest people I’d ever met. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Tracey Orne

  6. Dear Dan, Sorry, it has taken me a few days to type something into my computer. Although, I am grateful to have the chance to write in this memorial, an email seems so intangible when your trying to express such sorrow; this computer can not see my tears or feel my pain. I wish I could be there in person to give you a hug. I am sorry that you have to go through such grief; sometimes life just doesn’t seem fair. I will always remember Donna as a caring and genuine person. I know she is in a beautiful place and no longer in pain. She may physically be gone but her spirit and energy will always be around you. Hopefully, through time the air you breathe will feel less heavy and your heart will find comfort and peace. I Miss you Donna. Love Always, Suzanne
