  1. To Scott & Family and friends of Darlene. I'm very sad and in shock to here shes no with us. I loved her as a Mother and in her eyes I was her Daughter. My kids Bishop & Rachelle she would say were her grand kids. My most wonderful memories of her will be our funny sweet moments and conversations. She loved Steven her son and her grand kids. Her sisters and brother(s) & Family. She was full of life and a very passionate soul, She dreamed big and loved the Cali sunshine and good food. Her sweet companions Gigi & Lili were her reasons when she felt sad and alone as her life seemed to not go in the way her hoped at times. She helped me in so many ways in my journey long ago. She was a STRONG, INTELLIGENT , LOVING and a Educated person who never gave up and was always a fighter.I will always miss her and forever be grateful for all the time she gave me and the times she pulled me up from the dark place I was in. I will miss you but will see you someday in Heaven where you belong please watch over us all as you will remain in our Hearts & Souls~
    Chanette & Family

  2. My heart has so much pain with the loss of Dar, 1of my babysisters. So much love & caring she had to give. She loved her family dearly. I remember so many times she would just show up at my home in Jax Bch when she was off on 1 of her adventures. She had no fear of anything out there traveling & sometimes hitch hiking to get to where she wanted to go. I loved my trips when I visited her in San Diego. Going up the coast stopping to take pics. Our adventures in Pa. when we were driving Mike crazy with telling him what to do & where we wanted to go. Keeping him up late at night talking in our room. So many memories to keep in my heart. Oh I Miss You So Much. I should be gone being the oldest-Not my babysister. Dar loved her son Steven so much. Dar you are in a peaceful place with other family members. When I look at the sky I will always see you. "I LOVE & MISS YOU. Your big sister Bonnie

  3. Dear Steven,
    I am sorry for you loss. I loved my sister and will miss her forever. I'm sorry I couldn't be there today to say goodbye. You are in my thoughts and prayers. My my sister and your mother be forever in our hearts. RIP Darlene.
