Bill, Carl and family.  I am so sad to hear about Donna's passing.  I worked with her a couple times at LabCorp and she was always so helpful and kind.  I remember one day I had to go to warehouse to pull some requisitions and she was usually very quiet but this day she was joking around and teasing Bill alot.  It was good clean fun.  I saw a different side to her.  You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.  Love to you all!!
