I am sorry to hear of the loss of Darla to the Muehlhausen family. In Isaiah 26:19 The Creator has promised : “Your dead will live.. . . . Awake and shout joyfully,You residents in the dust! . . . And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” The Creator realize the grief caused by death and his promise is wipe away the agony and pain death brings.

So sorry for your loss. I took care of Darla's yard for years. She was always so nice to talk with.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've so enjoyed my visits with Darla the last five years, it saddens me that those visits have come to an end.
I loved teasing her about her candy and her dessert's, she liked them better than any of the food served to her. I learned more about her in these last few years than when I used to spend time with your family ,years ago.
I can't convey how much I will miss my visits with her.
I walk past her room everytime I go to visit my mother in law., It will certainly be sad to not stop in on her anymore 😢
Sincerely ,
