  1. We are so sorry for your loss. We won’t be able to make it up for any arrangements since my 93 yr old mother just had surgery and she is staying with us. Darlene was always very nice and had a smile to offer when she saw us. Sending prayers for you all for peace and healing.
    Doug & Sharon Dasenbrock
