    • In Remembrance

      After the passage of time.............I wanted to let you know that I hope your family has recovered well. Recently I viewed your story from 2011 (newspaper) and I see three survivors who cling to each other and will always be strong in the memory of their loss and honoring a mother and wife.

      I hope Kent is doing well these days in schooling or work. Liz, I thank you for letting me be a pen pal during that first year. I hope you achieve your dreams.

      Jonathan, a good father who stood for his children and his wife.

      Your American friend, Allan

      It has been four years since the disastrous day. As we look back, we remember you and the 184 other victims of the earthquake that shook the city, country, and world. You were and still are deeply missed by your family, friends, and all others that you knew. Remember that everyone you know is doing well. Rest in peace Donna.

    • Dear Donna

      How we miss you coming into our living room from 4.30pm every weekday and informing us of coming events, interviews, cooking, fashion and off coarse the shopping with lots of laughs.
      We did enjoy your company during this time in our home and miss you immensely.
      Our deepest sympathy goes to your children, mother and father, sisters and brothers and family and friends.
      As Donna would say at the end of Good Living "Take Care of Each Other".

    • It was a joy to work with Donna, presenting the craft segments on CTV. She was always highly professional but so down to earth. She always delighted in talking about her family and friends when the camera was not rolling, and I loved hearing what she had been up to. I loved the experience of walking into a set that was so welcoming as that of the Good Living show and it was an absolute joy to be able to be a part of the experience that Donna created. I know from experience it is incredibly hard to grow up with one parent taken away in such dramatic fashion. Treasure your memories.

    • Hello,
      I didn't know Donna hugely well, but enough to know that I really liked her. What a lovely lovely lady. I am so so sad for her loss.

    • Your Mother Changed my Life Forever


      You don't know me but 15 years ago I was a friend of your Mums at school. Your mum introduced me to the St Albans Baptist church youth group where we spent alot of time all doing fun things including Youth camps. One night she took me to a Youth for Christ rally and that was the night that changed my life forever, as I gave myself to God and became a Christian. Even back then your Mother was a loving, and remarkable person and I will never forget the huge positive impact that she had on my life. Thank you God for the blessing of her life.
