What a beautiful musician and person. Her spirit was quiet and playing spoke out. I will miss her but keep her in my heart. I pray God through Jesus Christ will grant her peace.
A talent like no other. Donna will be missed but never forgotten. It will be an honor to honor this angel.
The music world will miss her as will I. She is a strong player and our positive memories will live on. Godspeed DD!
