Ill never forget those mornings at Meals on Wheels when I would come in at 6:30am and Darlene would be there ready to get to work with a smile on her face. I was always greeted with her smile and it rubbed off on me and wed both laugh and chuckle about something wed seen the day before. She was an awesome friend and Ill never forget her laugh. Shes always been an inspiration for me. I will miss her energy, personality, and her love for her family. Im so glad I have memories of us having fun at work. I hope your flying high above the lakes with others who have gone before you. We love and miss you already Darlene.
