My heart aches for you all during this time of loss of your Mom. I have many happy childhood memories of going to your Mom and Dads's home. Darlene has always been so good to me and always remembered me, after I grew up she continued to have a smile for me and a hug. I always appreciated that. Jake you take care, I have you in my prayers, thanks for sharing Darlene and your family with the Morigeau Family. Much hugs and love to you all. MaryRose & Family

WE are so sorry for your loss. We know how it hurts to loose those we love so
dearly. The pain we feel in our hearts seems unbearable and the only thing that
helps gives us a little peace is knowing they are not in pain...I remember first
meeting Darlene and was in awe of her beauty and as I got to know her was in
awe of her inter beauty as well...Her beautiful smile showed what a totally beautiful person she was. Our prayer are with the family.
