Darlene gave me the greatest gift of all - a nephew. She had the most amazing smile and an enormous heart. I admired her work with animal rescue and rehabilitation. I'll be here for Eric whenever he needs me. So sorry for the toll her loss will have on her whole family.

I don’t have the words to say how much I’m missing you right now Dar . I feel I’m living a nightmare. You had more love to give life to live. They say we fought like sister but lived even harder . My life will never be the same without you. I love you . 10 years of love laughter n dreams. I hope you are riding free running through the clouds .

I am not even sure what to say, my sweet Dar. I still cannot believe you are gone, this is one of the hardest goodbye's I have ever had to make. You overcame so much in life and still remained positive every step of the way. Watching you fight through your recovery, and continuing to help others was very admiral. I will never forget all the times you were there for me when I got picked on as a kid, when you pushed me to get my motorcycle license, when you flew in and finished my speech at Nan's funeral because I couldn't do it. Now I have to attend your funeral and it's just so heartbreaking. I wish this was all just a bad dream. I love you so very much Dar, until we meet again may you rest in peace - Love always, your cousin Lexi <3

As I write these words I cannot believe that you are gone...much too young. You have touched the lives of so many...I still remember the first time I met you, you were only 4 years old...so tiny but fiesty even then. Then you became a part of my family. You were one of the strongest women I have ever known. It is with a heavy heart that I have to say good bye ...RIP Dar I will love you forever - Aunt Lynda

Dear Crissy my heart is breaking for you and Jennifer and the boys. I drove Dar home a few times from work when she lived on Upper Wellington and saw first hand the critters that she loved lol. We felt like family when we all worked together. She was a loving brave woman and I admire the courage that she showed over the last few years as she faced all of her challenges. I can’t be with you on Saturday but please know that I am thinking of you and sending love and hugs
