So thankful that Jim and I were able to visit tonight for the last time, on this side of eternity, anyhow. I will miss bumping into Daphne out and about in the community every now and then and catching up on the "school" news. I loved working with her many years ago and am so blessed to have met her and called her friend. Our prayers will continue for the family in the days to come. She will be missed much! Loved you Daphne.

My heart is broken for the family, the community and everyone that was lucky enough to have known Daphne. She was a loyal, dedicated person, who never said a harsh word about anyone. One of the employees called her Sunshine, and that is what she was. She came in with a smile, and left with a smile.
All are in my prayers and thoughts.
