My Darlene, I just heard about your suffering and death today, 4-27-2014. Though we were physically separated we were never separated in mind and heart* I smile when remembering, how in our much younger years you taught me a few James Brown dance moves * you are much loved and greatly missed. Tell my my dad (your uncle Sonny) hello.
I will see you up the road. Love, Debra

I received a call yesterday telling me Darlene crossed over that rainbow bridge. I met Darlene when she was a toddler. I watched from afar as she grew in beauty and grace over the years. I was sad to hear of her suffering and know her Momie, Doris Jean, and her Uncle Sonny, were first in line to welcome her home. My Love and Prayers to all. Aunt Katie
