  2. I was so very shocked and saddened to see Darleen in the obituary’s today. I new Darleen years ago when I lived in Santa Fe with my then boyfriend, Hunter. I was blessed to get to know Darleen and Monte through Hunter. I had so many good times with Darleen, and I still have all of those memories. Darleen was such a free spirit and loved life. Even though I have not seen Darleen in years, I have always thought of here now and again and wondered what she was doing. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. She will be missed by many.

  4. My friend, my co-heart that I will miss terribly! Whether we were in Sand Springs, OK, Tulsa, OK, Galveston, TX, South Padre Island, TX, Enola, PA or Mexico we always had each others back. Darleen loved her family more than anything in this world! She will be missed at work and many other places. It’s only appropriate that you be laid to rest on July 4th, a day of independence, a day of freedom! One day my friend we will meet again!! Love you Dar! <3

  5. Oh Darleen, how I will miss you. You have been my friend all these years at SWA. Your kindness, love and laughter will be missed but never forgotten. I am so thankful that you were in my life and I am comforted in the fact that we will meet again someday. I know you are already having a great reunion with your father and our friend Jo. Thank you for always being there to lend an ear, share a story, and a laugh. I love you.
