Dear Kay,
Let me start by saying Darla's service was beautiful. I can't think of anything that could have been done that would have made it anymore so. Tom did a wonderful job. Even though it was very emotional for him too because he loved Darla.
When we first met in 1963 Darla was only 6 years old! So hard to believe. I remember how excited she was at age 12 or so, that she was going to officially be Clyde's daughter. Neither of them could wait for that to happen. Then before you knew it, Darla "borrowed" your RV and drove from here to Texas and then on to North Dakota before coming back home. What an adventure that was for her. (and you). And then the best news ever for Darla and you and Clyde, that precious baby, who turned out to be Daniel, would soon be here! And what a happy day that was! And ever since then Daniel has been number one in your lives, and rightfully so. You did good by Darla, Kay, and I know firsthand just how much she loved you and appreciated you. You were blessed to have each other. I hope you don't mind my sharing the photo of you with Darla and Daniel. Love, Bon

I spent many hours with Darla (Bon) on an online game. She was one of the nicest players. Always there to help others and say a kind word. She will be greatly missed by our community.

I am so very sad to hear the news about Darla. I have tried over the years to reconnect without success. I met Darla at GTECC in 1985 and soon became her sort of "protege" for years to follow. Cindy said it well to say "Darla was a hoot!". She was one of the smartest, hyper-active funniest ladies that I have been honored to know and love. I have so many great memories - some of which are sworn to secrecy :) I'll never ever forget her. I'm so sorry for your loss Kay.

Dearest Kay,

I remember fondly working with you at University DART and at GTECC. I met Darla at GTECC. Darla was a hoot! She made work fun, always cracking jokes, and taught me a lot about hardware. I lost contact with you both, but you've always been in my heart. I am so sorry for your loss! Darla was one of a kind and lived by those who knew her. You're in our prayers. Stay strong !

My thoughts and prayers are with you Kay during this difficult time. I have many good memories from Tambay Ave. Darla was certainly a part of those! Love you very much.
