Her 2 lovely sons Jason and Simon were with her as well as a nurse. Many of her friends had a chance share their final goodbyes with her before she passed, as well as several family members who drove many hours to visit with her. We probably all know Donna as a grace-filled dancing-fighter and that's exactly what she embodied right up to her last breath. As was her request; we will be performing the Tibetan Chöd practice with Donna for the next few days, after that time she will be cremated and some of her ashes will be scattered into Boulder Creek and a small gathering of family, friends, dances, songs and prayers will be shared. The time and date has not yet been finalized but details will be sent soon.
The Velveteen Rabbit
one of Donna's favorite books
"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?"
"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."
