We first met Donna and Danny, when they were giving a surprize anniversary picnic for Paul and Faylene. .maybe 20 years ago. Over the years we had many contacts with them, and Donna especially. She and I met at HyVee on Angular almost every week, not planned :-). She was a great encourager and served the Lord in so many ways. I think many times she was there getting food to fix something to fix something for someone else...That was just her way, and we all loved her for it. We KNOW that she is going to be so greatly missed in the lives of her family and friends, but we also know that she is "home" now and no longer in pain
