    Darlene and Lynn. I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I have such good memories of her taking us everywhere when we were in Jr High School. We had so much fun. I will never forget her. Love you all and I pray for comfort during this difficult time. Sandra Wheeler Ventress.

    Darlene&Lynn,I loved working for&with my Anna Banana.She wasn’t just my client she was my friend and we had a lot of good times together.we talked about a lot of things and she taught me a lot of things along the way. She was feisty and she kept me on my toes and she would occasionally give me a run for my money on certain things like wanting to drink coffee cup after cup.LOL. She loved life and her family and her coffee& her little weenie dogs. I will miss her terribly she left an imprint on my prayers and thoughts are with you all during this difficult time and if you need anything I’m here..💖 Bridget

    Darlene and Lynn, I’m so sorry to hear your loving Mom is gone. I loved her and know that you’re going to miss her so much. She was a wonderful lady and always so much fun to be around. I have so many great memories of spending time at your house. You’re so fortunate to have such a long time with her. She had a wonderful sense of humor and I always remember her beautiful smile! I’ll be thinking of you both during this sad time. RIP Mrs Bowman ❤️
