I knew Darla in college. We become fast friends. She became the God mother to my daughter. She helped me when I couldnt help myself. She was a very special person in my life and I will always love her. Fly high Darla I will see you again.

My sweet cousin Darla...
What will ever do without you in our lives? You are on to better things than this world and we are left to suffer the pain of losing you. I'm trying to move on and be happy like you wished for me and your family. I've been thinking about you every day and the healing has been slowly. Sending you kisses every morning and remembering that we are forever bonded and will be reunited in another lifetime. Til then...
