Jim and Family
We know we cannot express words that will offer comfort at this time but just know we are thinking of you.
We will miss Dar's energy when she would come up to drop off oats and look after the horses.
She was a very kind and thoughtful person offering to help someone else.
She would be beaming when she would tell us about her grand kids.
We appreciated her sense of humour and good natured teasing
She will be missed
