Donna Jo and I met when we were 9 years old. Shortly after that I nicknamed her DJ. I have fond memories of the times we spent together.  She was a true and dear friend which I will always cherish. Dick and all the family I send to you my thoughts and prayers. A wonderful wife, mother, grandmother,and great grandmother has joined our Lord in heaven.

Dear Spracklen Family, We were so very sorry to hear of Donna's passing. We were unable to make it to the funeral home. But, we have fond memories of getting together to play eucher and have a potluck dinner at the Scioto Valley Fire Dept. Your mom made a wonderful chocolate cake with brown sugar frosting. I asked for the receipe and she promptly grabbed a piece of paper that somebody had been keeping their eucher score on and wrote it down from memory for me. It has become a favorite of our family. I still have that receipe in her handwriting on that eucher score card! Cherish the fond memories you all have.God Bless! Erik and Cheryl
