    Curly was such a wonderful man. Always helpful, courteous and friendly. I met him through his wife Nola, a very special friend, and we enjoyed many good times together.
    My sincere sympathies to Nola and her family. May God give them strength, courage and peace through this time of sorrow. All my love, Carolyn

    Hi Nola,

    I just heard about Daryl passing away yesterday. I am real sorry to hear this and I wish you peace and comfort now that he is no longer suffering through the pain and agony he was enduring.

    I hope you are feeling OK with the different things that have been bothering you also.

    I hope to be bringing you some groceries in the near future. Take care.

    Your favorite Metcalfe”s driver Dave.
