Donna lived next door to my brother Stacey and his wife Theresa for some years , when I would go over to visit she would always be on the porch to greet me with a beautiful smile and big hug. I enjoyed our conversations we shared, I also went to her home a few times to do her hair and to some cookouts that her and her brother Champ will host and showed great gratitude to everyone who attended. I will be for ever grateful to share these great memories with Donna and her family. Rest well Queen.
