2-23-00 June and Darrell - Darrell, We just heard about your mother on the way into work this morning on the radio. We don't take the journal anymore and seldom listen to the local radio station. We are very sorry for you Darrell. We are sorry we missed being able to come to the visitation. You have our sympathy and our prayers.
