Donna and Bully grew the best tomatoes and she was the best cook in Leflore County! She was an avid Facebook user, always posting the funniest, most witty remarks, and was always the first to wish you "Happy Birthday". Donna was always there for whoever needed her and was the most caring and understanding person, after all, she was married to Bully for 68 years.
