    Heaven has received a wonderful gift as Donita was welcomed home even as we who are left here are sad to give her up. This wonderful friend is missed but I know she and others are there ready to welcome me as I follow . She and I shared many hours of wonderful friendship as we talked about God and His Word. You served Him well Donita. To her family… My sincere sympathy for your loss .
