To Donna's Gerry, and all their family,It truly saddened me to hear of Donna's passing, she was so full of life and fun. I have known Donna my whole life, as my Grandmother Gertrude Beyette and Grandpa Joe Mastine raised her from the time she was a little girl. From the time that Donna joined our family when she was very young it was obvious that she had an abundance of talent and love for the people around her. The last time I saw her was when my husband John was in rehabilitation at United Helpers and Blue Horizon was there on a Friday to entertain the residents, it was so good to see her and Gerry, after their performance they came to John's room to visit, it was like I had seen her the day before. Growing up she was like a big sister to me, I would watch her put makeup on, and get dressed to go to one of the many places she would perform, she danced and sang whenever she had the chance and that included the kitchen sink where you could hear her through out the house, and all the time she is singing she is dancing her little heart out, needless to say whenever Donna was around we all had a smile on our face, she was there whenever I had a question to ask as one would with a "big sister." So hard to know she is gone, heaven just received another angel who loved to sing.

I'm sending condolences to Gerald and all of Donna's family. When I worked at St. Joseph's they would entertain the residents and the residents looked forward to their frequent visits. It was so nice of them to share their time and talent with so many people.
