    I am so sorry to hear of Darla’s passing. Darla was my neighbor (over my backyard fence) when I was 7 years old and she was around 5. We lived close to Hugh Morson High School at that time. My condolences to the family.

    We have known Darla many many years ago as she attended Raleigh Free Will Holiness church… She would come with her precious grandmother Mama Scurry… Darla was so beautiful and so sweet… Praying for the family 🙏
