Donna was an avid reader of romance novels and mysteries.  Nora Roberts and JD Robb topped her list.  She loved her horse racing as well, you could find her at Keeneland betting on her favorites.  She had her lifelong crush on Kenny Rogers.  Just ask the Coward of the County.  If you could not find her in her garden, she may be taking a break sipping her favorite beverage, Peach Schnapps.  Her hobbies were crossword puzzles, candy crush and crocheting.    However more than any of her passions, it was the love she had for her kids and grandkids that defined who she was.  Fly high Mom, you will be missed.
