    Please accept our sincerest sympathy in the passing of your mother.

    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,

Please share your thoughts ...
