I don't know how to express my sorrow of a dear friend and neighbor passing so quickly. Charlie and I had many memories of Harold and Darlene as friends in our Middleville days. Our boys playing football, our men coaching, us doing the food sales! Lots of good times traveling on motorcycles, remembering the trip to Tennessee. I know that being absent from the body is being present with the Lord, rest in peace Darlene.
