    I am so, deeply sorry for the loss of her husband, family, and everyone close to her on these forums.

    I have never had the pleasure of meeting her, but she sounds like such a nice, respected person!

    Rest in peace, Donna! You will not be forgotten!

    This certainly was devastating news. Donna was a good friend and coworker in numerous forums for many years. RIP Donna.

    That is very sad news indeed.
    I will miss her great insights.
    I'm sure many others will too.

    She was a great advocate for users when software companies tried to pull sneaky tricks and for all things related to safety in the wildwildweb.

    I am one with the community in mourning the passing away of Donna..

    When a friend passes away, we ache and feel a gap inside us..anguish and pain in our hearts
    ..especially one that is dear to us.

    I got acquainted with her through COU and BrightHub / CNET. A harworking Filipino, she had a few times have talked about her dogs (children) and the many cats that her mother keeps in the Philippines. There are also quite a few Filipinos writing for BrightHub that she has introduced and at the time of our acquaintance she was convincing me to join them there.

    Passing away is always tough especially to those who are left behind...the pain hollows your heart... My condolences to Danny and her family during this period of sorrow.

    We’re With You

    When you miss her,
    we’re with you in spirit,
    wondering how you feel,
    hoping you’re coping,
    and getting a little better each day.
    We understand. We care.

    When you’re grieving,
    we’re beside you,
    in our hearts, in our thoughts,
    we’re sending you sympathy,
    encouragement, affection,
    and strength to carry on with life.
    She would want it that way.

    Thank you Donna for the hardwork, the help/assistance and for being a friend. May I enjoin all of you to celebrate the meaningful life that Donna has shared with us with a short silent prayer.

    Donna you will always be cherished.

    I was very fortunate to know Donna she was very much admired by her fellow mvp's but also she had a wonderful ability to get those around her irrespective of who they were involved which is never an easy undertaking. Donna was a very good security researcher and run the very well respected Calendar of Updates forum
    It is always a great loss when you lose a friend and as those that have posted messages across the internet are at this time still in shock i know i am we will all be left with very fond memories of her

    My very sincerest condolences go out to her husband Danny and to both their families at this very sad time :'(
