Prayers and deepest sympathy to family. Bill Blose was principal of Freeport Elementary when our girls went there. Both were great people.

When we celebrated 50 year's post graduation last week, Donna's name came forward - now we know why she wasn't with us then; she rests with HIM tday. She is remembered as a kind friend in those days long ago. Peace and Grace to the family.

Dear Ones ~ I am so sorry for your loss. Donna was a delight to work with, and I am proud and happy that I had the opportunity to know her, and to be one of her email 'buddies.' I, and all of us at the Armstrong County Community Foundation, will miss her greatly. Please accept my sincerest sympathy.
