    My sweet sister, Darlene Kay Munyon, she passed away way too young. She would have been 60 years old April 2, 1960.
    She was a very loving, caring person. Our Grandma Hart, Mom’s mother, lived with us and took care of Darlene while Mom worked. Our brothers and me helped too, after school.
    When Darlene was 14 years old, she flew all by herself to Hawaii to visit me and my family. She stayed two months. My husband at that time was serving in the Army and stationed at Schofield Barracks on the island of Oahu.
    Darlene was in 4-H and learned to be very creative making all sorts of things. Mom wouldn’t let her visit Hawaii until Darlene finished all her projects.
    I love you forever, see you in Paradise.
