Darline and I were in Sunday School, Susanna Wesley Circle,
the Senior luncheon and breakfast together. I always enjoyed hearing her stories about different things in her life and she was so passionate about Lions Club, I admired her greatly.

May God comfort and bless you.

Darline and I were friends her years here and shared in many activities, Susannah Wesley circle, Sunday school classes, and Bible studies. We talked often on the phone. After John passed away she kept his memory alive,telling of his many accomplishments. I remember, LaCene, when you were here and brought her to Sunday school. I remember her telling of she and her sisters on the farm in Minnesota, and of moving here frm Van Nuys, CA. She told me once they didn't have thunder storms there in V.N. I hadn't known there were places where they were not prevalent.
Thinking of you,her family in her passing, prayerfully
