Becky and Anna, I am so sorry to hear of Darian's passing. I wanted to be at his memorial service, but I was out of the area and couldn't come back. My heart and sympathy goes out to you both.

I remember on weekends Oma and I would go to bed Friday night wondering who would be a sleep on our living room floor/couch and or dining room floor the next day. Lanny and you and friends would stay up ALL night playing cards or board games and several would just stay and sleep here and have breakfast before going home. Oma and I loved it and dad didn't mind it. I have many wonderful memories of you! Love you and miss you and you will always be in my heart. Love and prayers Cheryl.
