Orion was such a joy to be around. When our 1954 class met for lunch every month I enjoyed talking to her and seeing her smile.
I had eye surgery today and will not be able to attend her funeral. Darlene you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. God has another Angel.

Mrs. Holder , was like a Mother to me. She was a very strong and loving lady. I have so many special memories of the years we spent together. She will always be in my heart.
And dearly missed. I will be here for my sister Darlene. Until we are all together again. Heaven has another Angel. And what a reunion with loves one that went before. You can't help but feel a peace knowing they are together again.
