    To the Family of Darla Ovre,
    We are very sorry to hear this of your mother Darla, I really got to know her when Bill and Darla move over by us in Canton, I enjoyed talking with her in the evening, when i get home from work, she would be sitting outside and she would yell across the street, come on over, I would stand over there and talk about my day, i would go in house and make supper only to find her waiting for me to come back outside, she was a great lady, and truly going to miss her. She spoke very highly of all her kids, and of course her puppies as well. I will hold her memories close to me as i know you will hold her memories close to you. Please fine comfort knowing she at peace. God Bless you all.
