    Darlene was one of the most intelligent people I have ever known. She also had an extremely dry sense of humor which took a few seconds to appreciate. She retained this sense of humor throughout the last 111/2 years when most others would have just given up. Her faith and love of Jesus were a constant. Darlene was a friend that I could speak openly to about my spiritual journey. You have touched so many lives. You will be missed.

    Darlene and I have been good friends since our children were little. She was an amazing person…smart,witty, and warm. She was able to get through any situation by relying on her deep faith. I will miss you so much til we meet again. You were an inspiration to me.
