Donna was very passionate about the outdoors and loved whenever she would see a Robin, because she knew spring was coming. Donna loved bird watching as well as seeing all the wildlife and bee’s as spring would begin, she also loved gardening both flowers and growing her own food. Donna loved spending time with her family especially around the Holiday’s where she enjoyed lots of crafts. In her off time she would often color and paint as she loved her artistic side.
A week before Donna’s passing her daughter Kiki had a dream that her sister GyeGye came to her in, and let her know that she was taking mom home, and everything was okay, which brought Joeseph, KiKi and the rest of the family lots of comfort.
