I am saddened to learn of Mr Darvin’s passing. I had known him for as long as I can remember, having grown up in the Trap/Mars Hill community. I have many memories of Mr Darvin, the fondest being him and some of the other men from the community seated around the heater inside the little country store at Trap sharing a good laugh or discussing farming and other community news. Prayers and thoughts to Mrs Clara Lee and the family. Audrey, I am thinking of you.
