Although we are not with you in person, we are with you in thoughts and prayers. Donna was more than a stepmom and stepgrandma and we will miss her very much. She was the best thing that ever happened to Darrell and she welcomed me and mine into your wonderful family with open arms. Each time we shared a special occasion with all of you, Emily would say she wished that she had such a big, close family. Donna was the heart of that family and I know you will miss her a lot, but there are many memories to keep her alive in your hearts. My wish is to remember her just as she was when she entered Karen&s house the morning of her wedding to Paul singing "Here comes the bride." She was so nervous and happy and acting like a young woman with her first wedding. It was a fun time to see her in love and happy again.
Donna was the lifeline for me to keep in touch with all of you and get updates of all your family news. The last time she called, I wasn&t home and although she talked to Paul, he got everyone mixed up and couldn&t remember what she had said. I will live with regret that I never called her back that time and got the updates from her. Please know that you are all in our hearts and that we hope to continue our family connections even with part of our hearts and family now in heaven.
Love and prayers to all.
Carol and Paul and Emily

My deepest sympathies to you and your family. You are in my prayers.

I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. -Leo Buscaglia

I am so sorry to see that Donna has passed away. I knew Donna when she was at JC Penney&s. I worked at Penney&s for 25 years but, I left in 1998. I am not sure if she was there when I worked there or I met her shopping. She was always a very pleasant person and will be missed.
My prayers are with her family.

Our prayers and sympathy go out to Paul and the family of Donna Cox. She was a very sweet lady. She will be missed at Palm Village. We were so shocked to hear of her passing on the day we arrived at Palm Village from Remington, IN. May her family feel the presence of Jesus in your sorrow.

Paul and Family:
We think so much of you and your family and thought what a fit it was for Donna to join your family. She was a lovely woman and showed the love of Christ in all she did to help whoever had a need.
She will be missed, but, we can find solace in knowing where she is and who she is with...our Lord.
Lots of prayers going up for you at this time that God will provide the grace that is sufficient for these times.
Paul and Mary Stratton
