I got to know Darla when delivering milk to the DG. Walking in this morning to say Hi Darla,like I did every Monday and Wednesday and she wasn’t there seemed surreal. Sad I won’t be seeing her again. My heart felt sympathy to her family. Fly high with the angels Darla.

My sincere thoughts and prayers to all of the family. I am very grateful to of known Dart for many years as a friend and co-worker. We shared so many good times and laughs together both at work and out of work. I can here her now saying, "Stop crying and feeling sad for me"; then she would give me the usual greeting that we both shared with one another, lol. What I can say is that anyone who knew Dart well enough can only feel sadness at this time as she touched so many hearts with love and wonderful memories. May you Rest in Peace my friend. Until we meet again...

This is very hard. Sending sympathy to the families of Dart. I have lived in SC for several years now but was always friends with Dart. She was such a special person and anyone who knew her couldn't help but like her. I have so many memories of our teen years through the 20's. God needed an angel so please Dart help your family and children and friends get through this. R.I.P my friend. Use them wings and fly high!

Kelby, Tiffany and Jess, My deepest sympathy to you, her children, her grandchildren and Pam. I've known Darla from when we started school. She was friendly to everybody. I was always glad to see her at the DG. Your mom did an amazing job raising 3 children. She didn't have it easy but she stood tall and kept a positive outlook.

So sorry to read of her passing. I knew Dart when I was younger, and stayed with my brother at times in Canton. She was always funny and could get me to laugh at a moments notice.
