Dear Darrin and Donna,
I close my eyes and I can see and hear your mom talking about you. She was always so proud of both of you. I remember long ago when she took me on the ferriswheel ride at the Grand Valley Fall Festival. I was very young and scared, but she kept me calm thru the ride. I have many fond memories of Karen, as she was one of my sister's, (Madeline Hall) best friends. It has been over one year since Madeline's passing. They are together again. You're in my thoughts and prayers. Love,
Kathy Hornung
