Sorry for your loss! Donza was a wonderful person to work with…

I was very saddened to hear about Donza’s passing. We worked together a number of years ago. She was a dedicted public servant. My thoughts are with her family including her brother in law John Kavanagh and sister in law Joan Holloway. Cherish your fond memories.
