To the Whiitesel family. Sending our thoughts and prayers to each one of you during this time. I have many, many great memories of the Whitesel family from many years at South Meridian church. I started working at the donut shop shortly after they moved from north Broadway. I still have the old kitchen clock that Darrell and Mary gave me for Christmas present in 1960. It still runs and I often think of the days working at the donut shop when I hear the clock chime. I watched all you kids grow up. Darrell was a fine man to work with. Our prayers are with each one of you today and the days to come.
