Darlene and I were friends and basketball buddies in high school. Although we haven’t kept in touch through the years I am so sorry to hear that she has passed away at such a young age. Sending prayers of hope and love to all of her loved ones.

I am so sorry to hear this! Dar and I had a wonderful time playing some amazing ball thru the years! Some of my best memories are tied to her (beating Mt. Vernon....twice in 2 days?!!?). You will be missed! 😥🏀💔
