I am trusting that this is the family I knew from childhood. If so, Donna's mother and mine were in a canasta club together, that included several mothers who met when their children were in kindergarten at Kimberly Avenue School on the "Hill" in New Haven. I have fond memories of the Bontempos before their mother died much too young. My deepest sympathy to Donna's husband and her sister, Marilyn.

Donna was a treasured sister-in-law and Aunt - we will miss her bright and beautiful nature, her smile and her sense of humor. She will always be in our thoughts and missed by Lori, Cameron, Carson and me.
