My sincere sympathies to Donnas family. I knew Donna since high school, in St Paul. She was in my brother & my husbands class, and was a year ahead of me. No matter when or where’d I’d see Donna she was always so happy to see me, and we would catch up with whatever was happening in our lives. I last saw her in Sobeys, about a year ago. We were already in lock down, for COVID and were masked up. When we were saying goodbye, she said “to hell with the rules, we’re hugging! “ We gave each other the biggest hug, never to know that would be the last time I would see her. She so missed her granddaughter, and is now reunited with her for eternity. Rest In Peace, Donna. You were such a good person. 🙏✌🏼♥️😢
