NEW YORK – Family and friends are remembering the 38-year-old Brooklyn woman who was killed by a hit-and-run driver on Christmas morning.
The Daily News reported that Donna Fountain left behind a handwritten list of her dreams that she carried with her and that was recovered after her death.
Fountain hoped to find her dream job, buy a house by the age of 45, marry the woman of her dreams and see to it that her now-8-year-old son graduates from college. She also wrote on her list that she hoped to open sanctuary housing for gay and lesbian teenagers.
Her friend Dena Baveghems told the News that Fountain “was all about making her dreams come true. Nothing could have stopped her except this.”
