    Darra and family,
    Sorry to hear about your mom. I had not see your mom for years and then about six years ago she came to my dad’s celebration of life. My mom and I were truly touched that she was there to offer her condolences to our family. I told her that of all the people there she was the one I will always remember and she made me cry. My thoughts and prayers are with during this tough time.
    Sincerely Donna Noble
