  1. Darby, I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I am sorry I haven’t called but I had misplaced her number. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Jeanie sent me an email to let me know
    and i will let Shirley’s for class mates know of her passing.

    • Hello Laverne,

      Thank you for your kind words.
      She knew her friends and family loved her. She loved to reminisce about all the happy times with you and Jeannie and all her friends from school. She has certainly earned this peaceful rest. She’s been fighting the good fight with some health issues for quite a while. She was ready to move on to the next wonderful Adventure.
      With love,

      Darby (Daughter)

  2. Well, Darby, I remember you speaking of your mom and Hearne when we hung out at Navarro. My cousin is Casey Unger, just to help you remember who I am.
    I am sorry I did not get to meet your mother.
    And I am sorry we lost track of one another.
