Dear Doug,
Thank you so much for taking such good care of your Mom and my best friend. She was always happy when we talked and so up lifting for me. I will miss her so much. We were inseparable when we were kids and were in each others wedding parties. I was so lucky to have such a special friend like Darvia growing up and also during our aging years, approaching our nineties, with our birthdays only a month apart in September and October. Your Mom truly loved you and always raved about the caring you gave her so selflessly. All my Love , Gloria Mink Wiles.

Thank you for all your kind words and of course sharing some memories of you and my mom growing up. Having mom to hear your voice one last time I'm sure meant so much to her. They say the hearing is the last to go. Thank you for being such a great friend to my mom. I will send you her prayer card along with a couple of photos I think you will enjoy. God bless!
