    She was the Best Nana around. Always worried about others, never thinking of herself. What a true blessing! She also happened to make the Best cakes and spaghetti sauce! Forever in our hearts. We love you.

    Grandma was never concerned about anything other than the well being of her family. Not only blood family but friends of the family that she considered were her family too. She would take the shirt right off her back for anyone. To know grandma was to know love and acceptance. To be loved unconditionally. Grandma i will always remember our times together and keep you close to my heart. I love you forever!!!!

    Dear Family of Donna Brown,

    I am writing to express my sincere sympathy for the loss of your loved one.You can be assured that comfort and hope are found in the pages of the Bible.The bible book of Revelations 21:4 speaks of this hope for the future, for all who deal with grief :And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”I hope these promises from GOD will bring a measure of comfort, please keep those memories of your loved one close.

    Sincerely,Mrs. Sandi Watkins

    Donna or granny as I called her was an amazing woman. I had the great pleasure of hanging out with granny inside the beauty shop and outside of it for many years. The quality person she was is hard to find. Someone who puts others first, honest, caring and so many other great qualities I could list. Granny I love you and you will truly be missed!!

    Gone but never forgotten…Sweet Donna. Thank you for being the warm hearted, kind person that you were. You will forever live in the hearts of your children, grandchildren, and loved ones. As your grandson, Kameron, so eloquently expressed yesterday at your service, “You belonged to God before you belonged to us, and he has now called you home.” We miss you so much, but we know you are with him and free of pain. One day we will all be reunited. Then we will once again see your smiling face, feel your warm embrace, and rejoice in your everlasting love. Until then, rest in peace, Sweet Donna.

     Few things in life will ever affect you more than the death of a parent. Not only do you have to endure the intense pain of loss but you are also left to face a future that will likely be quite differnt from what you had expected. The Bible assures us that death will be no more. May you find that such promises will help you to cope with the loss of your mother. My deepest sympathy to each of you.

    Revelation 21:3-5John 5:28,29Psalms 37:29Â
