    Many people at Green Valley in Noblesville are shocked and saddened to hear of Donna’s passing. We have good memories of your work here when you and Donna were both fresh out of Lipscomb. I personally am thankful that you both introduced me to Lipscomb, where I spent four of the best years of my life. God bless you all as you learn to live here on earth without Donna’s physical presence. You know that she has won her victory, and we praise God for that. Keeping all of you in our prayers.
