    Sully, I am so sorry for your loss. I love Donna and miss her terribly. I did her hair for years and always looked forward to seeing her and hearing her stories of family, travel and her luncheon clubs. Whenever her face would pop in my door, I’d ask “How’s the kid?” (Shaun, of course) and she would beam radiantly.

    Bill and Shaun, Just heard from Cousin Jo Mary Sullivan about Donna’s passing. It has been many years since I have seen her but my memories are of a very warm and welcoming person. I am sure she was that way for the rest of her life and leaves behind many who cherished her friendship and loving personality.
