Mickey, Cathy, Mike Your Mom, my sister loved all three of you unconditionally. Having children was her joy. She waited a long while for you, sweeties. She was a source of heavenly blessing on earth with her love for all and her smile, warming hearts forever. I pray for God to comfort you all when you feel so broken. I'm here if I can help. I love you all.

The first time I met her she wanted to hold Kody my youngest son because he was crying. She could tell my the tears running down his poor little face. So I let her hold him and he just stopped crying! She was/is a wonderful woman.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Mickey,Cathy and Mike...we love and cherish each one of you. I will not forget her in my daily life, as she is an integral part of both our lives. Darlene always pronounced my name as "Shad-ee". I kept it as a wonderful part of our relationship with even the sound of her voice in my memories. Love all of you.

Aunt Darlene was always a good and kind person and someone who saw a lot of beauty in the world where most other people can't or won't. I'm glad to hear that she had a peaceful death surrounded by family. That's the best any of us can hope for.

Although you are suffering and you know there will be difficult times ahead, I hope you feel the overwhelming love, support and compassion we all have for you. No one can replace the light and love both your mom and dad brought into your lives but I promised them years ago that… if ever there came a time when they were gone and you needed me, I would always be here for you. Please remember this as you now begin the rest of God’s plan for your lives without them by your side. Love with all my heart…because words alone cannot express our shared sorrow. ~Auntie Mary
