"My mom had an interesting and full life. She was adopted when she was young and separated from her five siblings. Fortunately, with the increase in technology they were ultimately destined to find each other. I was her only child, and she sacrificed a lot in raising me alone. She was proud of her work caring for children as she worked as a bus driver until her retirement in 2011. She didn’t just have a big heart for friends, family, and the community, she LOVED the animals. Especially her dogs ~ Brandy, Rusty, and Riley. My mom was kind and very loving and she graced my life and so many others and will be dearly missed. One thing you can remember or hear in an echo of her voice 'don’t mess with her son or her animals' May she rest in peace."
Bless the Beasts and the Children in remembrance of Darla Kay Hill.
