  • David, Anissa, Steve, Ava and family, I’m so sad to hear this news. Aldonna and David are some of the neighbors we met earliest upon moving to the neighborhood. What pillars of family values, what great caretakers of our neighborhood, and how kind and thoughtful and considerate of newcomers. Bless you all, and peaceful passing wished to Aldonna. Lots of love to you and your family, the Andersons on Baxter Drive
