I was on 35W with my husband and son right after the accident. Some call what I have a gift. Is it not always right but ever since the accident I have felt implored to contact the family and let Darlenes sons know she was thinking of them and how much she loved them in her final moments. She is worried they will struggle with her death. I also sense she had had a recent disagreement with one of her sons and wants to let him know that she knows he didn't mean what he said, she didn't either and the she loves him and will always love all her boys. She says she wants them to make smart choices in life and to make mama proud. God Bless

Darlene was one of my best friends in high school. I was very saddened to hear of her death at such a young age. We had a lot of fun times together and also got a little wild occasionally. I am glad for the memories that we had together and will never forget her. Rest in peace Darlene.

May God hold you tightly in his arms Darlene. I'm sure he's telling you that you did a wonderful job on earth. You were a great neighbor and classmate. I will miss you dearly. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. God Bless.

Darlene was one of my best friends in high school. We had a lot of great memories together, you may say we were a little wild! (I hope that makes her smile.) She was my roommate at college and she was a bridesmaid in my wedding. She was a special person in my life. As we got older, we grew apart but I'm always grateful that I had that time in my life with her. My prayers go out to Cody, Jakob and Levi for losing their mother at such a tendor age. Always keep the best memories alive. She will always watch over you as mothers always do. Rest in peace my friend.
