Darlene loved her Lord , her family and friends with all her heart. She gave it all with a beautiful smile, shared her wisdom with us, always kind, and so very proud of her grandchildren.
Darlene made time to read the bible from beginning to end to our mother, Patsy. They were "2 peas in a pod" true friends.
Remember Darlene and smile for she taught us valuable life' lessons.
We cherish this gift of Darlene
God shared with us. With love
Autumn and Leandra.

Dot was such a dear person when Willis and Keith were gone to Ohio with Mike and Jonathan committed suicide she and Crystal came and were such a comfort to me. She was a true friend and I will miss her so very much. As the grandchildren filled her life more and more we didn't talk as often but when we did we just picked right back up where we left off. I don't know why the good Lord saw fit to take her at this time I know He had a reason but I sure do wish He had given us just one more summer with dear Dot. My heart and prayers go out to all of the family because I know she is going to be missed so very much😧

I don't care where I was or what even we was doing at the time whether it being playing bingo, grocery shopping, at a doctors office, etc. Dot would always come and talk to me. She never failed to ask me about my mom. She had a heart of gold and I will definitely miss talking to her. Fly high sweet lady cause there is no doubt your flying with angels in heaven!!
