I just can't believe your gone. I miss you and will miss all our fun times and joking and kidding around. The sound of your laugh continues to echo through my mind. Until we meet again my dear sweet cousin...oh by the way, I'm still the cutest Darlene. (Our running joke)

I've known Darlene and Donnie my whole life and grew up down the street from them. They've always been a part of my life. My heart is so sad that Darlene is gone but I know that she is healed forever with Jesus. I'm thankful that I was able to message her and we both told each other I love you. I pray for comfort and peace for Darlene's family and we love you.
