Main Street, Verona, WI.

The family would like to reflect on how fortunate Donna was to have exceptional care givers and friends during the last three years.

"When I must leave you for a little while, please do not grieve.  Rather, start out bravely with a gallant smile.  For my sake and in my name, live on and do all things the same, feed not your loneliness on empty days, but fill each waking hour in useful ways.  Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer and I in turn will comfort you and hold you near.  And never; never be afraid to die, for I am waiting for you in the sky."

Nitardy Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
