Rest in peace, kid. Seems like 100-years since we were growing up in Holiday Hills, running around making our folks nuts. You will be missed by all who knew you. You were a sweet one, always kind and gentle. Heaven is a better place with you in it...

My deepest sympathies to the Ford, Sailor, and France families. Years ago, Donalea came to the flower shop I worked for and wanted poinsettias for her winter wedding bridal bouquet. We tried several things to see if a real poinsettia would work, but they unfortunately quickly wilt once cut from the plant. Determined to get her what she wanted, I made a hand sewn poinsettia flower in white for her bouquet (this was before current artificial flowers weren’t all plastic and tacky). It looked very real and I think she was very pleased with the results. Rest In Peace, Donalea. Your childhood classmates remember you fondly.
