    Darnell and family,
    I’m so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was such a sweet and kind lady and I always enjoyed being around her. I appreciate so the effort that she (and other ladies of Holden Baptist Church) made in making life interesting and fun for us when we were young. She will always hold a special place in my heart.
    Sharon Roberts Willard
