Dear Paul and Brannon, as I was looking through old files I found an article Corinne had when Brannon was 21 and going on tour with the Glenn Branca Ensemble. I googled Brannon and was reading all about his business in New York. I then saw Darlene’s obituary. We were so saddened by Darlene’s passing. You and Brannon are in our thoughts and prayers. We have fond memories of you and you both were so good to Corinne and Clifford “Skeeter”. Hope all your fond memories of Darlene will help during this very difficult time.
