  4. To LaDonna and the family of Alwilda, I am saddened at her passing but I feel peace at the sustained faith in God that she had over the decades of her life. She made her mark in nursing. I’m sure there are many students who benefited from her classes. May her memory be a blessing to those who knew her. Peace and love, Kathy Lord

    I cannot miss the chance to wish my greatest sympathy and love to dear, kind Ladonna and the family and friends of Alwilda. As her classmate and friend, I recently learned of her passing last fall. Alwilda was a person of many endeavors and she was a blessing to many also. I lost track of you and Alwilda for a long time and did not know you had moved back to Ohio until sometime last year. I’m glad for you and her to have been with family members there during this difficult time. I hope we can be in touch soon. God bless all of you as I’m sure you all have wonderful memories of Alwilda and you can find comfort from them. With Love and Prayers.
