Marlene & Don

A little bird told me that Marlene and Don Carlson will celebrate their 58th wedding anniversary today. Wow! That is some accomplishment in today’s world. Congratulations Marlene and Don!

I also know that Marlene was one of the five women that were the love of Darrell’s life. He told me many times that his mother and sisters were the very best. While he experienced his fair share of adversity, he felt blessed to have such a great relationship with his mom and siblings. And so my kudos today go to the special ladies that enriched Darrell Gene’s seventy-four-plus years of life.

    Hello Everyone
    Thanks to Diane and Larry, Marlene and Don, Bob is doing well. He says he has been enjoying the love and concern. He also says he is enjoying wonderful food and meals. He, of course, is lonely without Darrell. Bob has read each and every card that arrives by mail for him. He looks forward to receiving the mail and all things considered, he is Ok. Grief is a process and will take time.
