My heart is breaking and my eyes have been leaking since I heard the news about one incredible woman...Darlene Sharpless. I met her at ROM and it seems like we had an instant bond. She was the first person I saw when I came to work and we shared good times! She was always there when I was down with a kind word or a hug...and believe me Darlene gave the best hugs! I will be forever grateful for knowing her and so glad our paths crossed, but saying so long is so very hard....until we meet again.

Darlene and I started working at R.O.M. in October of 2000. In my 10 years there, I formed a special bond with a lot of people I worked with. Darlene was one of those people. I hardly saw her after my departure. I know I will see her again. She will be truly missed.

I can't even come up with the right words to describe how great of a woman Darlene was. She always listened to me when I had to talk. I feel lost without her! I am grateful for the time I had with her and will remember the laughter we had. Miss you so much. Love you always. Prayers for the family
