Donna was truly a special person. From my mother's first day at the Friend Center, Donna was kind, sweet and protective of her. I shared many a meal with Donna, my Mom & sweet Tiby. Donna loved to tell me about her family and we bonded over being the unmarried, "cool" aunt that the nieces and nephews looked to for love & support. When my mother returned to the Friend Center after her 6 wk recovery from a terrible fall, Donna turned to her, with watery eyes, and said: "I'm so glad to see you. I was worried you were never coming back." It was all I could do not to cry. That was Donna - always looking out for those she felt close to. I will miss her terribly when I go to see my mother. She will always have a special place in my heart and my sister's heart. We were blessed to know her!
Finally-I was surprised to learn Donna was 90! She asked how old my mother was and when I said 81, she told me she was 81 also! I believed her - as she never looked her age, and she was so proud to tell me she was 81. So, my lesson from Donna - you can be whatever age you want to be!!!
