    She dwelt among the untrodden ways
    Beside the springs of Dove,
    A Maid whom there were none to praise
    And very few to love:

    A violet by a mossy stone
    Half hidden from the eye!
    —Fair as a star, when only one
    Is shining in the sky.

    She lived unknown, and few could know
    When Lucy ceased to be;
    But she is in her grave, and, oh,
    The difference to me!

    -William Wordsworth

    You were a rare beauty my old friend. I am so sad to hear how things turned out, but I will always remember your beautiful and vibrant spirit. We had so many great times together, all of us. We love you and we will miss you.

    Our thoughts today are with Barb, Greg, Sharon, Sasha and all of the family during this time. Although Darcy is no longer with you, her creativity and spirit remain. I have many fond memories of the girls with Chad at the Minnesota Children’s Theater over the years. Happy and fun times. Those are the memories we relish. May you find those memories and peace within your hearts in the coming days.
