I had the honor of working with Darlene for twenty-five years at the Department of Children’s Services. She was an exceptional employee who always went the extra mile for the employees. She was one of the cherished faces at DCS. She always treated everyone with dignity and respect. She was a precious friend as well as a co-worker. She will be truly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. My heart felt sympathy to Butch, Terry Lynn and Tony Ray. Lucretia Sanders

Darlene was such a wonderful person and special friend as well as a former co- worker at the Appalachian Girl Scout Council. She was a loving and giving person who loved life and people.

So sorry! Praying! Darlene will be greatly missed. She was so much fun to be around and supplied my mama with silly glasses to cheer her up after her stroke. Look forward to seeing her in Heaven!

Our prayers are with Darlene's family. May God uplift you with peace and strength as you say good-bye to Darlene's earthly body. She will be greatly missed by countless people. I always appreciated her smile and beautiful laugh. I would look forward to seeing her because she just had a way about her that could wipe away any stress you may be carrying with you. She was indeed a precious person and the world was a better place with her in it. I guess the Good Lord needed an extra flower for His loving garden. May she rest in peace and those who will most definitely miss her find a way to travel this journey without her here with peace as well. I can hear that laugh as I type this condolence to her loved ones. Sending love and prayers to each of you.

To Butch, Terri Lynn, Tony Ray, and family, I am so sorry to hear the sad news of Darlene's passing. I am still in shock and my heart is hurting. You have my very deepest sympathy. I worked with Darlene for 25 years with DCS. We worked directly together beginning in 1995 for 10 plus years and became extremely close. Darlene talked about you all so much and was so proud of her family. I want you to know how special Darlene was to me. Any time we saw each other, we always ended our conversation with "I love you" and a big hug! Darlene understood the stresses of working with DCS and she alleviated those overwhelming days with her energetic personality and her loving sincerity for people. I am so grateful for our friendship and I will always remember her beautiful smile and fun spirit. My thoughts and prayers with you all at this sad time. Kathy Keen
