    So sorry to hear of your loss Terry, Michael and Tim and of course all your extended family. First acquainted with the Holmes family back at Holy Cross and of course Scouting. Donna was a great lady and a role model to me as a young mom. I loved her attitude! The world is at a loss for sure.

    Terry: Our sincere condolences. We have so many great memories of Donna in our parish, at church and many activities. Her clown ministry, Mrs Clause and entertaining the kids have lasting memories for us. May she Rest In Peace.

    Donna was a joy! She brought laughter as Mrs. Butterfly, giving hearts as Mrs. Claus, and friendship to all she met as Mrs. Holmes. She endeared our hearts to hers. She is definitely a gift on both this side of eternity and the next. Our heartfelt sympathy to you Terry and your family. As she joined in Christ’s Passion, she joins in His Glory!We will miss her joy at SVDP but will cherish her intercession! Donna Holmes, pray for us!

    Terry, my heart aches for you. My Jennifer wrote on her facebook page the following “Donna was a beautiful, warm soul that I knew through my parent’s church group in Nebraska. I’ll never forget, when my dad was in hospice and she came to visit and she left whispering in his ears that “soon you will be in paradise.” Donna is with Ted now in paradise. She was truly a very special and loved lady.

    Dear Terry, Chris and Connie,
    I am so sad to hear of Aunt Donna’s passing. I will always remember her big smile, contagious laugh and the way she always welcomed me to family dinners and holidays.

    I am so very sorry to hear about Donna. I extend the same condolences to you that you and Donna so generously shared with me 18 months ago when Jim died. Reading the testimonials to Donna renewed memories of our CFM meetings years ago. God will shelter you all during this time and in the months to come. It is most appropriate that Donna went to heaven during Holy Week. Prayers and blessings to all of you.
