Dear Coyne and family. We are praying for you and your family. Donna was such a blessing to all the kids in the Awana Clubs at Dexter Gospel Church. The girls loved being in her class, she treated them with love and kindness. She was very involved in church and loved the Lord Jesus Christ. May God comfort and be with you all. Love in Christ Jesus, Ivan and Linda
