    No one ever really dies as long as they took the time to leave us with fond memories. Florence will be missed in our office.

    Donat, Lynda and family,

    Please accept our sincerest sympathy in the passing of your mother.
    Donat, as painful as these times are you should take great pride in the perfect son that you were to your folks, who are now together again.

    Hello Donat and family,

    I am sorry for your loss. I remember you and your parents after all these years. I was brought up on Buckley Hill and especially remember your “hot rod” — I think it may have been a ’57 Chevy.

    I also remember your parents driving around town in the corvette.

    God Bless,
