I am so sorry to hear about Donna. I knew her when the dog park was being founded. She was a kind, thoughtful woman. I remember her and Whisper together, how fondly she spoke of her grandchildren and all she did to help build the park.
My deepest sympathies, Margaret Ann Gomez

This tree will represent a beautiful woman with a kind and generous soul. Donna gave so much of herself every day. Her love of four legged friends was no surprise. While helping so many four legged friends her kindness over flowed and touched the hearts of many people. These people became life long friends. You were a great neighbor, a loving sweet kick ass woman & a true friend. Thank you for all your help & kindness. You will be deeply missed.
