I was so sorry to get your news Carol and thank you for writing to me. I will never forget all the fun and good times we have had at the beach over the past 40+ years and I will miss looking forward to more. One of y favorite jokes of hers was her giving my door jambs the white glove check at that Easter breakfast at my house when we all wore silly Easter Bonnets.
My sincere condolences to all. Maggie B.

My cousin Dude was one of my favorite people. She had a quiet sense of humor and dry wit that was delightful. I will think of her often. Love to all the family

I worked with Darline for many years and really missed working with her after she retired. She was my teacher, my mentor and my friend. I had the great pleasure in driving her to the retirement luncheon for Rian a year ago in the summer and enjoyed visiting with her. I still have clients that mention her every year. She was a very special lady and we will miss her and her great sense of humor and her vast tax knowledge.Main Street H&R Block has not been the same since she retired.
