    I was very sad to read of Donatella’s passing. My son, Garrett and Hillary went to preschool together and as Moms with preschoolers and infants, Donatella and I spent some time together. She was a beautiful person inside and out. I pray the Lord Jesus will comfort all of you.

    You are in my thoughts every day and every night, you are missed here on this earth by many.
