Donatella, as she liked to be called will be remembered for her beautiful voice and gentle loving ways. We met her taking Italian lessons. Her and Ken's interests in music and art was infectious, and with her husband Ken, led to our enjoying togehter many evenings attending concerts and performances. We will miss her greatly, and can only say thank you for the all too short time we spent togehter.

Ken, We remember when you and Donna walked in the back door and announced, We're married. We remember holiday family gatherings. We remember the special place Donna held in Lucinda's and David's hearts. Our memories build a special bridge when loved ones have to part, to help us feel we're with them still and soothe a grieving heart. Our memories span the years we shared, preserving ties that bind. They build a special bridge of love and bring us peace of mind. Emily Matthews

Donna Garalli, Nancy Forrest, and I grew up together in Elmwood, Conn, in the 50's and 60's. We were all three best friends, until we went to college and lost contact. I got in touch with Donna again about 10 years ago, by contacting her college. We were delighted to find each other, and E-mailed for some time, until alas, my E-mails started coming back to me as "undeliverable". I feared the worst, as she had mentioned having brain surgery.....today I googled her husband Ken, and came upon his obituary, which then led me to hers.....I am devestated that she is gone and that I will never meet her husband......if Nancy Forrest should read this, I would love to connect with you ! My E-mail is AHNEIMAN@AOL.COM, and also, I am on Facebook as Helene Neiman (Nancy and Donna knew me as Alice).

I had the privilege of knowing Donna for a short period of time. She just wrapped herself around my heart. She walked me around the long block and listened as I read her travel stories about Italy. She has a special place in heaven. Janice Steelman, Hospice Volunteer

Nancy Forrest left a message on May 2, 2009:
Donna was my oldest and very beloved friend. I will always remember her kind heart, her lovely laugh, and her radiant smile. I have spent many wonderful times with Donna and her devoted husband Ken. She loved him so much, and was so grateful for his constant care and love. Throughout her illness she remained her delightful, laughing self, and helped me through my own illness. I will miss her but count myself so lucky to have had her as a friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
