I unite with everyone who knew your mom in wishing you peace and comfort as you face this very sad time. My continued thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I am so glad we had the opportunity to be with Darlene briefly at the last Tampa Bear Show. She was always so full of life and joy. Though it was obvious she was not well, she expressed so much love for all of us. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
