E- Greetings For Bruce 2012
Well 2012 is coming to a close so that means it's time for the annual
E-Greetings. I'd like to thank everyone who contributed -
especially since I know writing them was a bit difficult this
year. And I would also like to say to Bruce, Mimi, Brooklyn and
Amanda - you might want to keep Bobby Stewart on the payroll because I'm
pretty sure you have inherited us crazies. ;-)
Happy Holidays everyone!
|Note to the family,
Bruce, Mimi, Amanda and Brooklyn,
I just wanted to say thank you for sharing Donna with the world, but to start, I know that Donna always put her Faith in Jesus Christ 1st and then her Family, and then her fans! You were so blessed to have a mom who loves you as well as I had a Diva who loved me in the audience. When we all see our Lord and Savior, I do believe He will also say, and Meet Donna Summer, your sister through Me!! A part of me died also in May 17th, 2012. But as promised by God to his children, will see each other again.
Merry Christmas and always keep Christ in your hearts!!
Dearest Family, friends and associates of Donna Summer:
At this most difficult time when we experience the first holiday season without Donna, I would simply like to wish each of you a meaningful, peaceful and safe holiday.
May the joy of the celebration of the birth of Christ bring comfort and peace to your hearts even as they still ache over your still recent loss.
I appreciate the opportunity to convey this message to your through Cathy Hawkins' website. You must know that she is a tireless and excellent ambassador for all things Donna. Thank you, Cathy!
Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
"Go forward and don't look back. Celebrate, Give, Love, Laugh."
|Oh Donna! I know that you are in the center of heaven looking down upon us. I hope that you are proud of your fans as we attempt to move on without your beautiful presence to guide us. Indeed, the holidays will be less bright without you here to share it. I will one day feel your kindness, radiance and talent when I join you in the hereafter. I am most excited to hear some of those gems you left us. When the family is ready to put it out, I am ready to listen. Best wishes to all of your family this holiday season. May it be a Christmas filled with joy and peace for them. Enjoy your birthday in a way you have never before celebrated. I miss you and I love you.
|just a short message, to all Donna's family, i can't imagine how you all must be feeling at this time of year. As a fan since 1977, i still ask myself why?. why Donna? I, like millions of other fans, all over the world, are thinking of you all, not only at christmas, but also on Donna's birthday. she will always be in my heart. Love to you all.xxx

|Dear Bruce, Mimi, Brooklyn and Amanda,
I wish you all and your families a peaceful and relaxing Christmas and a Happy New Year!
This past year was hard on us all. But together, we will move forward keeping Donna's
legacy. I feel fortunate that I had the opportunity in knowing her for so many years.
I will forever treasure our conversations. She is our Angel now.
My love always,
|Dear Bruce and family
Thinking of you and sending you love and blessings this holiday season. Although Donna is no longer with us, her Spirit is here and lives on through you and millions of us through her music and life works.
I miss her. I can't even imagine how much you all do too. Through our faith in a Higher Power we will all do as Donna would have wanted. To live laugh and go forward.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
||Bruce, thinking of you and the Sudano Family this Holiday Season.

|Dear Bruce and family,
even if we didn't know in person, I wanna let you know my heart is near you in this first Christmas without Donna,,,,,,but don't forget she keeps on being alive in our hearts ..........and now she's singing and dancing for our God with a
multitude of angels............so open our souls to the hope one day you'll be all together in heaven.................Donna you'll have always a special place in my heart....you're a part of me......Thanks, Donna............................. Happy Christmas, birthday and New Year !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Though this has been quite a difficult year, your faith has carried you through and will continue to carry you. Your family and all of your friends are here to support you always.
Wishing you and the entire family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Keeping all of you in my prayers. God bless you Bruce!!
I am thinking of you this Christmas season. I am also thinking about all the beautiful music you and Donna made together and sang on stage. Especially, “Worth The Wait” and “A“Different Road.” You and Donna had a wonderful 30 year marriage and she knew she married a good man. Your 30 year marriage was an inspiration to us. My husband and I just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. But as it says in Donna’s prayer card, “Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate: “
Wishing you happiness and everything good in the year ahead.
Thank you Bruce for putting up with people who think they know you and your family. Thank you for sharing part of your life with us for so many years. I don't claim to know how you feel or what the past year has been like for you, but I know you're a believer, and in that, there is great comfort. Merry Christmas and God bless you in 2013.
YOUR friend unknown,
|To DONNA THE QUEEN, Bruce, Mimi, Brooklyn, Amanda, Abner, Mary, Dara, Rick...everyone in the family and everyone who is close to Donna ....
I´d like to take this chance to write some personal words to you. I´ve been doing this for quite a while now, but is has never been as bitter as this time....
Let me start with what I want to say. Donna lit up a light in my life...that hasn´t stopped burning ever since, like her song "I´m a fire" She was and still is the
ingredient to make my life colourful, like her song " I´m a rainbow", she infected me with her "Love ...to love you baby" and she led me to places and higher grounds - made me believe that I could accomplish things in my life I probably never would have dared to dream of without her.
Once Upon A Time......This DONNA SUMMER story isn´t over yet.
Donna made a fairy tale ....a dream come true - for so many people. She remains in our hearts, our soul, our mind, in our ear. Donna´s voice and good spirit will stand the test of time.
Thank you BRUCE and FAMILY MEMBERS for sharing your wife, mum, sister, aunt.....
DONNA SUMMER - SUPERSTAR with us. And thank you for being so open, so easy to access and for
being so easy to talk to (Mary Bernard). Thank you all for being so beautiful and for
being so human. You give a great example for showing believe, faith and grace.....
Merry Christmas to all of you,
Love Raphael (Germany)
|Thank you that you gave Donna Summer Sudano a real home. And thank you, Mr. Sudano, that you inspired her to ‘Bad Girls’.

|Dear Bruce, Mimi, Brooklyn, Amanda, Mary, Linda and the entire Sudano/Gaines Family,
As the Christmas season bestows us, it comes with a heavy heart this year after such an immeasurable loss. We collectively stand with you and offer your our continued prayers and love. Christmas is the season of giving, and for so many years, Donna and you gave us so much joy and happiness and those are also immeasurable. In this season of joy and hope, please know that your family is truly part of our family, and we pray for your continued strength, health and happiness. With a new year approaching, we will do so remembering the legacy of Donna and trying to share with others what Donna shared with us....LOVE. Sometimes loss teaches us the greatest lessons of life, and this certainly has been the case the past seven months. We are here for all of you, always.
The Greatest Gift is Love.
|I want to wish a Christmas filled with joy, healing and love to Bruce, Mimi, Ricky, Vienna, Savanna, Isaiah, Levi, Brooklyn, Mike, Amanda, and Abner. What can I say? Donna lives in our hearts forever. May the joy of the Lord be with this loving family now and always. May you all abide in His presence always and above all, don’t look back: celebrate, live, love, laugh.
With lots of love from Nse in Nigeria.
At the close of this mind bogglingly emotional year I want to thank you for your generosity and kindness and show you my respect and admiration for your wonderful talents as a songwriter. In these past six months I have admired your strong faith and poetic honesty.
Wishing you and the family a peaceful holiday season. May the love and support you have for each other carry you through and keep your spirits and hearts uplifted. Let the LOVE be FELT eternally.

|Bruce, Mary, The Girls, and Family,
I hope you find joy, in your life and work in 2013. It is there. It must be. Donna left joy for us all, here and there. We just have to pick up the pieces, and cherish them.
|Dear Bruce, Mimi, Amanda, Brooklyn and the rest of the family,
This is a message sent through Cathy's website (one of Donna's earthly angels!). My heart goes out to all of you on this day Dec 31. as we keep Donna in our hearts. I pray that you will continue to have faith and courage and I thank-you Mr Sudano for all the wonderful music and memories you and Donna brought to me and the rest of the world. She will live forever through her music and her legacy will live on; and know that she is always with you in spirit and love.
Have a wonderful 2013 and best wishes to all of you!

||Dear Bruce and family,
I know this Christmas is going to be a bit, well...
strange. But I hope you find all the peace and joy the
season has to offer. I know Donna loved you all very much -
it was evident every time she talked about any of you. She will be
there with you this Christmas and every day. Just keep looking for
those rainbows. :-)
Merry Christmas and have a blessed New Year. (Hey, 2013 has GOT
to be better than 2012, right?)
