TRavelers' reflections

after our LAST radio city trip


Thank you so much for everything. The Radio City trip was just perfect, perfect planning, perfect weather, wonderful people, the performance was so wonderful, dinner was delicious, and staying in your home was the icing on the cake! D.R. (note: several people came from out of state to take this trip, and they stayed at my house the night before)


I want to thank you for the gift that you gave each and every one of us, this opportunity to travel to NY to sing for the Rockettes audience and to share wonderful fellowship with other fellow singers. I am not a very adventurous person, but something made me jump at this opportunity. It is so evident that all of your time and hard work "making this happen" brought you joy seeing that it brought us joy. My husband and children all have told me how proud they are of me. I am truly grateful, and thank you for being resilient. D.M.


Thank you again for coordinating such a momentous event and opportunity. Truly wonderful. Breathtaking. Making memories to last a lifetime, or several, across generations. S.K.


That was absolutely beautiful! You are truly amazing! I am very glad to have been included in the trip even without singing!! Please let me know again about other opportunities to sing with the group! I had a great time! L.V.


Thanks for sharing that wonderful opportunity with all of us. You are a real inspiration and I hope to sing with you again one day. D.M.


Thank you, Darla! We greatly enjoyed this experience! Please keep me in your email database as we would love to sing with you in the future if the opportunity presents itself! L. & K.
