To Bob and her wonderful family, I wanted to add my tribute to Donna as well.Donna was a once in a lifetime friend and colleague with a love of life ,nursing, humor ,friends and FAMILY.She always made me feel special ,as she did with everyone she met. She made one of my first Christmass away from home feel less daunting by including me in her /your Christmas tradition of Christmas breakfast on Christmas Eve night.Her calmness in the midst of many stressful Emergency situations made me a better physician and a better person.Her strength of character showed through in the way she dealt with her own health crisis .She has often been on my mind and in my prayers and will be forever missed at J.P.M.H. and in my heart.Donna has touched so many lives in so many positive ways that her incredible influence will live on.Be assured Bob and Family that she has mounted up on eagles wings and that your wonderful memories of a life well lived will see you through many difficult days ahead . You are all in my heart and I will pray for vou.Rest well donna . Love and prayers Phyllis Johnson

Sorry to hear of Donna's passing. Although I haven't kept in touch as much as I should have, I did keep track of you and Donna's health through Max and Sylvia. Please hang onto all your good memories, that with the company of friends and relatives will certainly help in times like these. Take care of yourself and drop a line anytime you'd like to.
With deepest Sympathy.
