Dana was my daughter-in-law she was a fighter. She had to be married to my son. She held her own. She would do anything for anybody and never asked anything in return. She loved her dogs and will be greatly missed by her family. We loved her like a daughter. We had our feuds but always stuck together one way or another. We will miss her.

What do you say when you haven't seen someone in years because of many stupid reasons. I wish things were different and now they will never be. However I will always remember Dana as someone that never took crap from anyone matter what. As I will remember her as kind and truly deep down a softy even though she was a tough cookie. I feel she will be able to rest in peace and k now that she was loved by many. Her memory will be cherished form those that she probably never knew cared so much but unable to show it. So sorry for everyone's loss.

I'm truly sorry to see this. She was a neighbor and friend. She really would do anything she could to help someone out, I saw her do it many of times. When I was reading some of the comments left, they made me crack a smile. Dana was a tough lady, she didn't take anyone's crap, and she usually let you know it.. we had our battles for sure. Lol I wish we also weren't as stubborn and maybe it would of been different. She did live her dogs sooo very much more than anybody, I heard her tell her husband Tom that before, she loved them better than him haha... Again, I'm truly sad about this.. Tom I hope you are doing ok.... I'm sorry for your loss!!! Ernie, Trisha and phillip the same to yinz.. I never met her other daughter, but to her I am sorry,too. Take care, Jessie

Sad and heartbroken Dana is my sister. Things happened so fast I wish we had more time but it is what it is and we don’t. I remember when we were kids how short, so tiny, shy, sweet and soft spoken Dana was. Soft spoken for sure didn’t fallow Dana into adulthood. We use to tell Dana you have a mouth like a truck driver. I will miss telling my sister (Hey Hey settle down this is a family show). My brother Nicky gave all of us nicknames. For some reason (I don’t know why) he nicknamed Dana (Hazel) after the TV show Hazel. Nothing used to piss Dana off more than calling her Hazel, Dana hated that she always said I’m certainly NOT Hazel the cleaning lady. (LOL) Nicky, Dana and myself were like the three stooges when we were growing up we stuck together had each other’s back and never once snitched on one another, that used to driver our mother crazy. Anyone that truly knew Dana knew she was a pistol who lived her life her way, didn’t care what people said or thought, just like that song I did it my way she did it her way. Dana’s dogs were her pride and joy, the kids used to say she loved the dogs more than them. Dana would say, well the dogs don’t talk back. LOL I miss you Hazel give Daddy a big hug for me. Tommy, Andrea, Ernie, Trisha and Philip I can’t express enough how sad and sorry I am for your loss. You guys are always in my thoughts and prayers. Godspeed to Dana!!! Love, Aunt Tee
