    Dearest Donna,
    You were such a kind and thoughtful woman and will be so GREATLY missed!
    I will NEVER forget the kindness in April of 1984 when my Father died and you brought food for my family and mourners. Thank you!
    You flew to Washington State in 2010 for our youngest daughters funeral. Thank you!
    Once again in 2015 when my husband died unexpectedly only with a great larger group of mourners you opened your home and provided food for the mourners. Thank you!
    I can only imagine all the many kindnesses you have done throughout your Beautiful life. If only I could even emulate a small portion of your Godly life, I just might have a small chance to join you with our Heavenly Father.
    You were a Blessing and a heavenly gift!
    I am praying for you Ray,Laurie,Robert and Susan that God may ease the ache in your hearts.

    All my love, Camille Christner
