    I immediately loved Donna the moment my brother David introduced me to her at my parents (Allen T Nelson and Rose M Nelson (MacQuesten) 50th wedding anniversary. I remember her warm and friendly personality. She was unselfishly at my mother’s side taking care of her needs as my mother was losing her battle with colon / rectal cancer. Donna is truly one of those people you will never forget and a rare, loving person I was blessed to meet and know.
