  1. My sincere sympathy and condolences to Darlene’s family and friends. Although I have known Darlene for only a brief time in our lives, I was touched by her sweetness and good nature. She is a kind and gentle soul. The Lord, her mother and father and friends who passed before her all have welcomed her into God’s Kingdom. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  2. Several years ago we met Darlene as neighbors. She babysat our children and they knew her dog, “Fella” quite well! She was extremely kind and always lived in the sunlight. May your family be comforted with only the peace that God can give you.

  3. Darlene and I are contemporaries and I first knew her when she was a student at Sam Houston State University. We have been out of touch for decades but I am nevertheless shocked to learn of her death. Darlene was a thoroughly, deep down decent person. I doubt she received from this life what she deserved. I know she now has her great reward.
