  1. We are so sorry. We were never that far from Broaddus and she and Keith communicated about getting together but it didn’t happen. May God give you grace, mercy, and peace.

  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with Gary, Rose and Michael and the entire family. Darlene has always been family to us since she was our sister-in-law when she was married to Ross’ dad and when she married Gary he became a part of our family also. Darlene’s entire family had been a part of our lives for a long time. She will be missed.

  5. Dear Gary, Ross, Michael and family,
    Terry and I send our love and prayers to you. When we lived at the lake Darlene always spoke of her sons and grandsons. You were her life and she enjoyed the time she spent with you. She was a very proud Mama and Grandmama. Another thing that Darlene enjoyed was a Dairy Queen Blizzard! Every time we went to Jasper to shop we ALWAYS stopped at the Dairy Queen, she loved the “Blizzard” and made me a “Blizzard” fan too. There was never a discussion about IF we would stop for our “treat” it was UNDERSTOOD that we would stop. I’m sure that you have many fond memories of your Mom to recall and talk about, remember her often and know that you were loved.
    God Bless You and give you Peace.

    Terry and Brenda Holt
