I was one of "Aunt Donnies" Kiddie Korner kids. She took such great care of all the kids and you knew she loved you. I remember my favorite meal she cooked was chicken and rice, green beans, and slice od bread. At 38 I still want it the same way. RiP Aunt Donnie give uncle LE and Aunt Geraldine a hug from me. Your love for the children helped me as I got older and became a preschool teacher. Praying for the family.Kecia Slaughter Applebaum
