Donna was a beautiful lady inside and out. She and Dave invited me to their house a few times for drinks and chats. Donna showed me her doll collection of which she was very proud. The article forgot to say how much they loved to travel in their motorhome. Donna had it decked out in a collection of dolls too! Dave has been sorely missed and now with Donna gone, a chapter has closed. RIP Donna. I know Heaven's gates swung open wide for you and Dave was waiting right there for you to arrive.
