    Here's a few photos that Matt sent me. Enjoy!

    There is one of Dad. I am not sure what it is from but he is posing in front of some machinery (I am guessing it's from his job with Dow; but thats just a guess). There's 2 more of mom.

    One memory is always having a sore throat the first morning after arriving for a visit! Yes. Upon arriving Therese and I would talk... well I would prime her pump so to speak by talking so much that she would finally kick in and start laughing and...  more

    Some memories:

    (1) Mom liked to drink day old, cold, black coffee. Oddly, I now do likewise.

    (2) I never understood why mom liked the downstairs bathroom to be so cold. I laugh when I think of bringing Little Carol and Little Melissa to NJ and seeing...  more

    Yesterday I had a dream about dying
    About laying to rest and then flying
    How the moment at hand
    Is the only thing we really own
    And I lay in my bed and I wonder
    After all has been said and is done for
    Why is it thus we are here
    And so soon we are gone

      Sandi Donner That picture at the parade reminds me of the great times going to the 4th of July parade in Glen Rock. Fun times. Plus that is a classic Grandma D expression.

    Therese was my Grandma. I’ll always remember the handmade doll house and warm ziti that awaited us at her house anytime we came to visit. She had a funny personality filled with lots of spunk and had an independent nature. She let me stay up way past...  more

    Grandma Donner was always active. I don't have many photos of us, but some of the fondest memories from my childhood include going to the Glen Rock pool together or taking walks with Grandma and the family! <3 She emphasized the importance of...  more

    Grandma left a legacy, from her supreme knitting skills, to having us all over for thanksgiving, to summers at the pool. She loved us all so much. While I personally don’t have many photos of just us, I do have photos of her two favorite grandchildren...  more

    I have so many memories of mom, but I’d like to recall one from when I was a pre-teen. Back in the day, dad had opportunities from his job to take customers and their spouses to Broadway shows. As such, mom was able to see many of the hit shows when...  more
