Darlene was a great friend! Tears are in my eyes as I remember so many happy, laughing times together when we were neighbors and friends in Bell City. I pray for peace and comfort for all those who love her.

Darlene was a beautiful person, inside and out! I will miss her deeply. I've known her for more than 50 years, but we were only close in the last few years, and she was like a sister! Prayers are sent up for her and for Jeff and Brandi and families.

You were the absolute best mother in law. I had you for 27 years. Those were the best years. You loved me as your own. I loved you like my momma. I know you are walking around in Heaven, you’re healed, and you’re rejoicing. Selfishly I want you here with us. I will miss you forever. I love you so very much. I know you loved me too. One day, I will see you again.
Love you always,
