Condolences to Rusty, Jess, Madison and Preston, and all the family and friends. I well remember when Darlene became one of the family. We couldn't wait to meet the woman Rusty had fallen head over heels in love with. It was clear from the first the feeling was mutual, and Darlene was now a cousin, too. Darlene's lifelong dedication to family and community, Fire Department, school stuff for Jess, and then her grandchildren speaks of a happy life well lived.

Rusty and Jess-

My deepest sympathy. There are no words, she was a lovely, lovely lady. We are sorry to not attend the service but are not comfortable in public yet.
