Dear Cathy and Jay,

I understand now. So sad and sorry for your loss, but happy for Darlene’s gain and peace. I know how hard this time is for you and all of yours. May y'all find peace in Christ and feel God's love for you and your family. Your mother is with Him now and is having a joyful family reunion with all those who passed on before her.

My son David was reminded by his grandpa that birth and death are the hardest things we go through here on earth, but are very important steps in our progress back to Heavenly Father.

Thoughts and prayers are for you and with you at this difficult time. URAwesome and Uramazing. Love ya. Scott

P. S. Also, thanks for caring for her in such a loving and kind way for so many years.

Jack & Darlene went on vacation with mom and I. We went to Nevada and Yellowstone. Fdarlene showed me how to work the one arm bandits. She won, I didn't

She was warm and gentle. I will miss talking to her on her birthday. Love her.
