  1. My deepest sympathy to the Donlan family on the loss of your Mom and my dear Aunt. Aunt Helen was one of the kindest, gentlest person I have had the pleasure of knowing!
    I am positive that my Mom, Aunt Marie and now Aunt Helen have all sailed through the pearly gates and have joined and are welcomed by loved ones gone before.
    It has been an undeniable tragedy that these lovelies have left this earth so soon, together! I do believe God has a plan for these dear souls to help him with something that we may never know!
    To all my family, may Lord’s peace be with you all!
    All my love,
    Susan Marcotte
