I greatly enjoyed caring for Darlene at Comfort House, and listening to her life stories. Reading her book of memories is amazing! She was such a grateful woman for all done for her. She was delighted when we shared that we have the same middle name! I had relatives in the old RedRock area too and knew several same people she did. May the Lord comfort you all, as you cherish the many memories she gave you over the years. Karen Vink, Night CNA at Hospice of Pella Comfort House.
