    Our sincere condolences to Nap and Donna’s family. One of my fondest memories of Donna was being on the winning team at HMGC that honored the loss of another dear friend. We advanced to Firestone and shared a lot of laughs over the years. Tom and I are thinking of you with sympathy and hoping that tomorrow will bring you comfort and peace.
