Dave, Darla was a really good woman and I am glad to have been in hers and your life even if it was for only a brief period of time. I will remember fondly the camping trip at Rocky Gap with all of us enjoying each other's company. She was a blessing to my wife, Patty, too when she volunteered you and her to have lunch with us to discuss a knee replacement for Patty. She had a great laugh, and I don't know that I ever saw her when she wasn't smiling! Her picture here is a wonderful reminder of how she appeared to me. She will definitely be missed by all of us. May God bless you and your family. My condolences, Dan Kovac
