    Hello Karen and family,
    My deepest condolences to you for losing your sweet mom. She was always a pleasure to be around and I loved how outspoken and happy she was. I loved her booming laugh, contagious smile and her love for Swiss chalet gravy packets along with Ronnie’s. They are now together and young and happy again and I hope you know how much she loved you all. I’m so glad you were able to be with her and she knew how much was loved. It’s much love, your cousins, Lori and Greg Doggett and our girls, Ryley and Addyson

    My sincere condolences to daughter Karen and family and friends of Donna. I am one of the 9 cousins from the Polish side of the family. Ronald and Donna led the way for our clan. Most of us are from around Toronto where I was told Donna had a distinguished medical career. We salute her full and varied life and devotion to her grandkids and may you always have loving and inspiring memories. All the best to you and your family too. RIP
