In the short time I had the privilege to know Darlyn we became close friends, she was very dear to me. I enjoyed and miss our scrabble games, where she mostly kicked my butt. We both looked forward to our Monday and Wednesday night games. I will miss her so but she will always have a special place in my heart. I was lucky to have known her, my beautiful friend.
We had many good days together working to make the Post Office thru out the area a better place for all worker. May our Creator bring us all opportunities to better serve her legacy bring stability in lives! Greg Miller former Postmaster Bowler
