I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Donna. I loved visiting the house as a child. The description of her extraordinary home making skills was spot on. I always felt welcome and even tried to runaway to stay there one day.

Hi Christine and family, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear Mom. There's no love like a Mom's love. I'm sorry I never had the opportunity to meet her. She sounds like an amazing woman and her beautiful legacy lives on in you, Morgan and Taylor. With much love and sympathy, Shelley
