We're are so sorry for your loss, however we are happy that Darlene is in a better place. We wish we could have been there, but with the virus and all we figured it best not to come. We did join you on Zoom. It was a very nice service and we're sure Darlene would be pleased. Just remember our hearts and prayers are with you. Take care.❤

Sorry for your Loss. We were soo happy when Darlene came to join us in our Copper Hills DUP camp and were soo sad when she wasn't able to be with us anymore. May the Lord bless your family at the time of your loss. May He lift you up and strengthen you.
