Sorry to hear of the passing of a classmate from Highland High School. I didn't know Darlene really well, but I do remember that she always had a smile and a kind word. She was a joy to be around. May the Lord comfort you at this time.

Dear Sweer Friend, I know you are in a better place now, but our youthful friendship will never be forgotten. You moved around so much over the years it was hard to keep up with you, but seeing each other was always a joyful occasion. We will always be each others bridesmaids!
