We were sister-in-laws. We grew up together. She became a good friend. After my husband passed, on days I couldn't think of laughing, we talked on the phone, after the crying was over, she always left me laughing. Her end came to soon. I will miss her in my life.

There are far too many wonderful crazy memories to add them here. The things I would like to say is Darlene was one of my very best friends, She was loving, warm and omg a hoot you never knew what she was gonna pull. That's is what made her so very special. I know that she never carried hate or ill will towards anyone. She could take the most hopeless situations and make you feel empowered. She was my rock so many times. I love you my dear sweet goofy friend, My heart is broken. I love you and will never forget you. But I do know I will see you again, In the meantime stay out of trouble up there messing with them angles :)
