Just learned of Darlenes passing and can't attend the service but please know my thoughts are with you all. I have many fond memories of the times I went camping, swimming, staying overnight and spending time with your family. Darlene was kind, generous and always made me laugh. You all have my deepest sympathy.
My deepest condolences on the loss of Darlene. She joins good company in Grandma Vera, Grandpa Allen, Aunt Faye, and Uncle Tony. My thoughts are with you all. Andrew Michael Criswell
