I had connected with Donna in January from our DNA match on Ancestry, and we began to exchange family tree information. I was shocked when I was her name in the Independent. Our condolences and prayers of comfort to her family from this distant cousin. (Her Great Great Grandfather was by Great Great Uncle).
