  1. Laura Cook, Black Oak, AR says

    I remember Darla from when I worked at JHDC in the late 80's. She approached me every day because she wanted to know how things were with my boyfriend. When we got married in 1988 she was overjoyed and really seemed happy to look at photos. I'm terribly sorry for the family's loss.
