I am so sorry to hear about Darlene. I hope that if there is anything I can do to
help you Stanley, through this difficult time, you will feel comfortable
contacting me.  Darlene had her struggles at times, but she had more
strength and determination to survive than most women I know.  Her sweet
smile and beautiful spirit will be greatly missed. I will keep you in my prayers.
