Dear Leonard, Jennifer and the rest of Donna's family and friends,
I was saddened to read of Donna's passing. She was always a pleasure to visit with when I checked her in or out for appointments at the clinic in Deadwood. You and yours are in my thoughts during this difficult time. Warmest regards always Laura T :)
