    Ladonna was more than a 61 year old woman. She was a brilliant musician, a talented writer, highly intelligent, and a best friend for over 30 years. She was successfully battling a second bout of cancer and having fun connecting with her mother in California through calls and book reviews. She was strong, had one of the best life-compasses I’ve ever seen and was always there for friends and family. I will always remember her with solemn reveverence. Cathy D.
