We are so sorry about the loss of your Mom and grandmother. Paul and I were classmates of Donna's at Cathedral. Donna and I always sat near each other in home room for at lease 3 years. I am so glad we spent time getting to know each other again at the recent reunion and the reunion picnic. Donna was a special person, and again, we are so sorry for your loss.

Dear Manger and Salico Families, We were deeply saddened to hear of Donna's passing - she was a warm and bright light in the world that will be sorely missed. With her good humor, and amazing optimism in the face of difficult challenges, she was an inspiration and brought much comfort and happiness to others. Our hearts are with you at this sad time, Much love, Marianne, Robert and John
