Hi Lori and Gerry. You may not remember me, Chris’s ex girlfriend. Am so sorry about your loss Lori. I lost my Mom 2 years ago. Please take care.

Donna never changed through the years. I first met Donna when she was 16 and in high school. She was my brothers girlfriend and when they married a few years later she became my “sister in law. (more sister than in law) I loved to spend time with her and the family. As life’s paths changed we still remained sisters and friends. I sometimes regret that I moved so far away but even today I feel very close to the family and love that they feel close to me. Thank you. Walter for taking care of her during her time of need. I feel your pain and loss today and lets be thankful she is not in any more pain. We all have to try and remember the good times we shared with her. She will always be with you in your heart. Love you all. Aunty Helen
