Ms. Darlene was a faithful member and an ardent soul-winner. To us, she was like a mother. She was a true friend and always assured us that she prayed for us. She went home to be with the Lord - the Lord for whom she witness to so many people about! What a day that will be when we see her again and join her in the Heavenly and everlasting worship of God!
