Darlene touched my life and the lives of my family in many ways over the years. From a helping hand, letting me clean the Beauty Parlor when I was younger to make a few bucks, cutting Moms hair, cutting our kids hair. She was the most kind caring woman Ive known. She loved with all of her heart. I have admired her courage, strength and compassion for others and know that will live on with all of her family as well. We will miss her infectious smile and her caring chats. I pray for peace and comfort for all of the family during this difficult time. She was a wonderful friend who will be deeply missed.

Sending my condolences, loves, and prayers to all of Darlene's friends and family! I feel pretty blessed being one of many who had the privilege of knowing Darlene! My sister Steph helped babysit her grandson Taylor. I would tag along occasionally, helping entertain him and at the same time got to enjoy the beauty of his smiles when we would do a stimulation type therapy with his toys (what i remember, it looked like a mop doll),Taylor absolutely loved it and always showed he did, by giving us a big huge smile, and he most definitely lit up when his grandma Darlene was within his view, and anytime she interacted with him too!!! Such a sweet, loving, caring lady!!!
Much love,
Kelli Dewitt (Bagby)
& family
