I was shocked to see this and hear about it only recently. I Met Donna in my 6th grade class at New Monmouth School. We just automatically became good friends. Donna was always the best athlete (at softball), was coolbefore cool was a label and was probably the pretiest girl to ever graduate our school. She had confidence and self esteem and never was led by the crowd. In the years I spent with her at Thorne and Middletown Northour friendship never changed. She was loyal and funny and sharp as a tack. She was years ahead of everyone I knew and was mature, responsible in a way I had never seen anyone my age. Donna never backed down from a fight and was fiercely supportive of anybody gatting hassled or suffering unjustly. She was bigger than life! I cant imagine the loss her family is feeling but I know they are extremely lucky to have spent time with her. Donna will always be the Queen of Thorne and was the first Supermodel to rock "cut off shorts and flip flops" in the 70's. She is probably in heaven being more beautiful than any Farrah Fawcett or Jessica simpson could ever dream of being. She was so solid, strong, and rose heads and shoulders above the crowd and always will in my heart and memorieis. See ya round the bend buddy. Rest well Dear friend. Im just sorry we never got to catch up thru the years that flew by.
