I remember Donna from the Carlisle Hospital. She was a very kind and loving lady. Wonderful with patients.

Loved momma like my own. I will truly miss her sweet spirit and the way she welcomed me into the family. I am blessed that she raised such a wonderful son. Alan is a good man because he had such wonderful parents and family.
