  1. Dave & Jane: I’m so sorry to see that your mother has passed away. I’m sure that she is in a better place now. I remember the Sunday school classes she taught us in the kitchen at St. Johns church. Our parents worried about us for years but then it turns that we worried about them, how they were doing. Now your mom can look over you again. Peace be with you at this time of loss

  2. I remember sitting on Darlene’s sofa with Grandma when I was a kid. She was beautiful then. She was beautiful at 92. She always seemed so happy to see me and always made me feel like the only one in the room sharing with me stories of Mom or Grandma or Greenview. She was a beautiful lady both inside and out and my sympathy goes out to you. it’s never easy to lose a loved one no matter what age.

  3. To Randi and all your your family – our heartfelt condolences for the lost of your grandmother. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Know that us, along with your friends at work are thinking of you. Take care – Sean, Kate & Cameron

  4. Our deepest sympathy to all of Darlene’s family. She was such a nice lovely lady. My Mom and sisters all so enjoyed visiting with her at Concordia Village. Please know our thoughts are with all of you.

    Jenine Ridge and families
