    I am so very sad to hear this. 'Donna Bell' as she was lovingly called was my mom's best friend during their 20+ years together at RJR. She was a dearly loved family friend, who was always full of laughter and smiles, jokes and silliness. My prayers are with her family. We love you, D-Bell! Fly high in Heaven little angel!

    Donna, you have been missed by me for years. Distance has kept us from seeing each other. You were a cousin I can hear your laughter still. Sorry I didn’t know you were suffering with the hereditary disease. At least your suffering is gone. You’re are at peace. God be with your love ones at this sad thing me.

    My heartfelt condolences for Steve and FL family and friends as well as our NC families and friends. My dear cuz. Like yesterday was our visits on our grandparents farms in Weeksville,NC. On the waterfront in Beaufort, NC with your sis and our other cousins. Or a visit in Winston-Salem with your mom and dad. And who can forget the Cocoa Beach Shuttle Launch visit with Steve and son. You always knew how to make us laugh and enjoy life on earth. This is one visit I cannot believe is here so soon. May God bless all who knew and loved you as your laughter and kindness in life will fill our hearts for a lifetime.
