|I hope this memorial site will help Daria's friends and family remember what a loving, helpful, and fun person she was to all of us.|
This memorial website was created in memory of Daria Dittmer Hardin, Annapolis, Maryland: May 16, 1969-September 26, 2007. She loved her friends and family very much and would want everyone to always remember the good times and special occasions.
"Daria was the most handy person I thimk I ever met! All she needed was a plan and directions. She mitered the crown molding in the dining room, sewed, and cooked with aplomb. IShe would be so proud of her equally talented daughters."
"I remember when you and Ed came to visit me in VT in the summer of 2000--what a great time! You cooked a dish of artichoke hearts, chicken, ramps, and pasta, and it was so good."
"Happy birthday, Daria--nine of your birthdays have passed without you here, and I've thought about you and missed you at every one of them. You had some great birthdays, though, and I was so lucky to be able to spend many of them with you. It was always a lot of fun taking you somewhere nice for dinner on your birthday. It just occurred to me that I'm wearing my Carolina jacket as I write this--forgive me honey! :-)"
"Today we remember Daria on her Birthday."
"To my wonderful Daria. We miss your love, your brilliance and you wit! Each and every day I think of some fond memory;when you were a child, a teenager, a swimmer, a loyal Blue Devil, and especially a wonderful wife and mother.
You left us an amazing legacy! We love you!
"Thank you, Anya, for creating this. I want to write more later, but for now, just let me say that we will never forget her; her birthday is this month---so this is a good time to see this memorial."
"Daria left me with so many memories and two wonderful and precious girls. It's important to keep her memory alive for Natalie and Andrea, of whom she'd be so proud. Their sister Lily was only with us for 20 days but she will never be forgotten, either.
I'm not good at keeping in touch with Daria's family and old friends but I know they still love her and think of her from time to time since her passing. I will add pictures and stories to this site over time and I hope some of you reading this will do as well. If you see photos I post that you want to comment on, I welcome you to do that.
I want to thank my wife Anya for her help and encouragement in establishing this online memorial."
Have a suggestion for us?
