  3. Curt,

    Darla has been a very special person in my life for the past 33 years. She will forever be in my heart. Not only was she my best friend, she was my #1 employee. Tax Credit Assurance, Inc. has lost a huge asset that I do not think I will ever be able to replace.

    You, Brandon, Rose and Jim (and the rest of her family) are and will be in my thoughts and prayers from now on. Stan and I are only a phone call away and our door is always open for any of you.

    Sending love your way,

    Edie Kitchens
  4. I have worked with Darla for over a year. I was new coming into tax credit. Darla was always so kind and patient with me while I was learning the material. I could not thank her enough for all the things she’s taught me. Darla was such a great person, I will miss her and our chats terribly. Prayers for all of her friends and family during these hard times.

  6. Dear Robbins family:

    I am deeply sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Edie and Darla for 10 years. Wonderful duo, those two. Darla was one of the kindest souls I have ever met. She will be greatly missed. I pray for comfort for your grieving hearts.

    God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

  7. Dear Curt, Brandon and family,

    Words cannot express the sorrow we feel over the loss of Darla; our friend, your wife, mother, daughter and sister.

    Darla was such a lively and fun person, dedicated mother and kind soul We are sorry we did not have opportunity to visit together as much in recent years, but will cherish all the memories of all our many hours spend together listening to the bands (your’s Curt and Brandon’s) playing Euker, and our tip to see Eric in College Station.

    Please know that we share in your mourning and are sending you all our love and prayers. Curt, we are here for you… to visit, cry or share memories…anytime!

  9. Our hearts are heavy having learned of Darla’s passing. The shock still hasn’t gone away. We’ve thought of you guys often and had hoped to see you both again someday…it’s been a while. You are in TX and we set up home 14 years ago in FL. Where has time gone?

    The love you shared, the family you built and all the memories you created will sustain you at this difficult time and in years to come. May God be with the family.

  10. I am literally saddened by your loss. You should definitely be in heaven. You are a good friend of my mom, dad, Jessica Reina, Francine Lafon, Darrin Lafon, Judith Butcher, Michelle & Brittany, Casey Miller, Kathleen Velasquez, Steven Butcher, Jaden Lafon and Ben & Sue Reina. It’s kinda sad to see you go away. I remembered the time I got on your old Packard Bell computer, playing 3-D Dinosaur Adventure. I remembered the time I was at Carla Booker’s, watching DuckTales and playing Super NES with the girls. I remembered the time I was at my #1 lake with my mom, dad and Jessica Reina. Now, those days are gone. Best regards, a beginner male ballet dancer.
