    Bob, Al, Dianne, Chelsea, Ashley, & Madeline: I am so sorry for your loss. Darlene was a wonderful, kind, loving, selfless lady. She loved all of you. She was proud of each of your accomplishments. She told me so. She and I had some great talks. Bob, she would have gone to the moon and back for you if she could have. I only knew Darlene a short while, but I felt like I knew her my whole life. That’s how comfortable she made me feel. I loved Darlene. I will miss her.
    May God’s grace grant each of you peace; now and in the years to come. Rest in Peace Darlene. You are an angel among Angels.
    Your friend,

    Bob and Allen,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember Darlene’s contagious laughter, big heart and big smile. Always welcoming when our family visited yours at the house in Golden Valley oh so many years ago. Hopefully, in time, your sadness will be replaced with memories that bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart.
