My wife Linda Ryno, always considered Donna to be one of her great friends at McGuires Resort, because she always lead by example, of what a professional should act like , look like, and way of talking. She was always living life to the fullest, no matter what was going on in her personal, or business life. My wife was always happy when Donna would call and update her on her life.
Having just lost Linda in Aug this year, I know how Roger must be feeling having just losing the love of his life. My heart goes out to Roger and their families at this time of life. May God give you his blessings. Don Ryno

So very sorry to hear the news of Donna's passing. She was the best boss I've ever had! I learned so much from her, both in and out of the office, at the resort in Cadillac. She was smart , savvy, fun and kind! I will never forget how sharp she was in her business suit at my first interview! I just loved her! Thoughts and prayers to her family and friends! Sincerely, Lori Fullmer

Donna and I met in art class in the 8th grade and soon became best friends for life. She inspired me in so many ways and always pushed me to be a better person. I will treasure all our wonderful memories and honor her in any way possible. She truly loved "pure Michigan" and she knew this was always going to be her final resting place. Visiting Donna and Roger was like staying in a 5 star hotel. Her impeccable planning for detail down to her crisp sheets. I love you so Donna Gayle and thank you for sharing your life with me.
