    To: Cindy Tim and Susan Sorry to hear of your mothers passing. We’ve been friends for many years. I met her when she started dating Ray. She was about 16 at the time. I ended up being the Best Man at their wedding. Dar called me 2-3 Weeks ago. We had a nice conversation, talking about old times how things are today. She sounded good I was shocked when I heard she died. I’m sorry I will not be able attend her service. My family recently been exposed COVID-19. It’s best if I stay home. Darlene was a wonderful person. You have my deepest sympathy. I will be making a donation to Honor Flight Rochester in Dar’s Memory.
