    Donna Gallagher had many friends. I count myself lucky to have been one of them. I had the great good fortune of knowing her and working along side of her for decades. At work at Pressley Ridge she was my trusted colleague whose good sense, outside relationships, and arcane knowledge of rules and regs, funding streams, and all matters related to billing and accounting helped keep our services for kids and families humming. Outside of Pressley Ridge Donna was a force to be reckoned with. She had boundless energy and was always up for getting out and doing things. She loved walking, anything bestowed in black and gold, drinking beer, and music— doowop music included—which, of course, made her the perfect Pittsburgh companion. She was positive in her outlook and kind in her interactions, but she did not suffer fools gladly. She had what Hemingway called “a built-in, shock resistant BS detector”. However, perhaps due to her Catholic upbringing, she was always quick to forgive and forget. To know Donna was to love her. I shall miss her warm ways for the rest of my days. Our heartfelt condolences to Jim and Pat and the whole Gallagher-Tetzlaw family.
