    It was almost seven years ago, in November, that Al and I were on our way to Florida that we received a call informing us Bonnie had just passed away. Now almost seven years later we were on our way to Florida again when we received a call telling us Darl had passed away. In both cases we had visited them the preceding day saying our good byes. It made for sad trips to Florida. I spent many hours with Bonnie and Amy and Darl was always there to do whatever was necessary. The one thing that always impressed us about Darl was his unending devotion to Bonnie. His daily trips to the cemetery went way beyond his pledge of for better or worse. Love you, Bonnie Love you, Darl

  9. Kevin J. Clark says:

    On behalf of the Clark family we wish to express our condolences on Darl’s passing. He (and Bonnie) were fantastic neighbors to us. We’re saddened by the news.

  10. Elmer Sabin says:
