  1. I loved you like my mom, you were the dearest friend anyone could ask for. I’m going to really miss our drinks and long talks. Love you and rest easy!!

  2. Darlene was the greatest Mother In Law in the world and a dear friend as well!
    I’ve know her for over 2/3 of my life, since I was a 17 year old boy, having cocktails with her at Clem’s Poor House, The Rusty Nail and The Wishing Well! Power boaters are party animals and totally rock, and she was on the “A Team”! I will miss our chats, the parties and the Lake! Your corner of the world was a fun place to hang out!
    I love you, Mom!
