  6. Our hearts go out to our cousins and uncle. Aunt Donna has always been a wonderful, caring, loving mother and aunt. She opened her home and love to many of her nieces and nephews while raising her own family. She has been the Matriarch of the family after her parents and siblings passed. She took care of her parents when they were ill. She flew to Pittsburgh to be with me when my daughter had back surgery. I will always be thankful for having such a strong, loving woman to be not only my Aunt, but a second mother and friend. May your reunion in heaven with your parents and siblings be joyous. Know that you are truly missed and forever loved.
