I have had the pleasure to know Donna for 5 years and she is by far one of the sweetest woman I’ve ever met in my life. When I met my husband (Taelor) he was living next to Bob and Donna in Muscatine and no neighbors will ever compare to Bob & Donna. Bob, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I’m so happy you both have had so many lovely years making memories together. You both are incredibly special people to Taelor and I and Donna will forever be missed. Thank you for being part of our lives!

Christine & Taelor Bohnsack
