    What a special service to honor Darla. She would be so proud of Jeff, Todd, and Conner and so thankful for the other grands all attending. We hold dear memories of being with her and Jim and pray you will carry her memories and will to others on as you live. Also carry on her tradition of keeping the family gathering together.❤️

    These are a few of the special
Memories we have with Darla. A family visit, the only family visitors to Lindsey’s travel softball game, and a very warm and welcoming bead and breakfast for Lindsey and Deb on our waterfall trip with an extra special evening tour from Jim and Darla.
