Darlene was obviously a wonderful wife to our classmate Ken, and a wonderful mother.  She was no doubt loved and respected by everyone that knew her.  We had a period of time together when our children attended Saint James School.  That you Lord for the life of this good woman.  God rest her soul and bless her family.
