Donna, my cousin and my friend. I remember the summer you spent a couple of weeks at our house when we were still preteens. Then, visiting with you when you came to Cleveland -- sometimes coming to my parent's home, sometimes visiting with you in the mobile home -- complete with an organ for Axel to play, and once on the train. And, then, we missed one another when we were in the same city in Poland at the same time! Sorry we never got to travel together. Lately, it's been difficult to keep in touch, but you were thought of often. Rest In Peace.

Dear beloved Donna, RIP.. I will never forget the joy and anticipation as a child when you were in town. You made us feel so spoiled. I'm glad we were able to see you a few years back when you were able to visit here in VA. Mom and I loved you very much and you were so special, beautiful and kind. My condolences to Michael and Kevin and theirs families.

We can never forget your mom and dad, Axel for all the years being close to our family and Birdie and I living with them and helping with you Michael, and Kevin. And also to GiGi. I know it is hard on you all , Just know our thoughts are with you and God bless you. Love, Vera and Birdie.

She was a kind & humble and I’m sure she wouldn’t mind me using some Circus alliteration to say she was also an “Excellent Educator of Elephant Equestrians”! Over the years she taught many to ride & perform with graceful confidence, something she always exemplified. Her battle with dementia is over & she can be at peace as rejoins Axel & many others.

In loving memory of my dear friend from high school and Sailor Circus who became my sister later in life, thanks to my mom marrying her dad.
