I have known Donna since 2005, from what I knew of her she was the best sister to Danny and Terry an awesome aunty and friend. Where I saw her truly shine, was the first time I visited her after Emmett was born. She will greatly missed by so many. My heartfelt condolences to all her family and friends here in BC and back east. ❤
