I think the condolences for Donna should be private,send a card or call her on the phone, or talk to her in person,using TOTV does not sound very sincere to me.

I disagree.
We are her TOTV friends, having met through this forum. I think it is therefore very appropriate and sincere. I'm not sure it matters how the condolences are conveyed,what matters is the many people who took time to express their sympathy.

Autoshow: The subject of this thread is clearly "Donna and Family - Our Condolences". It is entirely appropriate that individual posts should be directed to Donna. Since she is part of our TOTV "family", using TOTV is very sincere. Many of us know Donna personally, she is a wonderful person, and very caring. Using TOTV to wish her well is certainly a genuine way to express our condolences.

Autoshow,

I have given thought to your comments and had similar thoughts prior to posting this thread.

Yes, we are talking about a personal issue, but how would all of Donna's friends know of her cousin's death, without letting them know on the forum that she is so involved in?

I would want to know, so that I could give her any support she might need. I would hope that someone does post these messages, so that we as a community are aware and can be supportive.

Just my thoughts, and I am glad that I did post this.

HB,
Entirely correct, entirely appropriate. I would not have know of her loss without your post.

Pete, I may disagree with Autoshow, but I feel he has the right to express his feelings.

This is a forum, I may not agree with someone's feelings, but I will support their right to express them.

This is for Pete,
I was expressing my side ;;;I think your comment that I should (edited by moderator) is way out of line, I think the moderator should step in and keep Pete off this forum

Dear Donna,

I can't tell you how sorry I am to hear of the passing of your cousin. Please contact me if you need anything at all. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
