Aunt Darlene will be greatly missed and always loved dearly!! My mother Kay loves her so much and I hope to help her with every wonderful memory. As all of us cousins growing up as kids and the summer trip to spend together. Waiting outside as we pulled up. The shopping trips to the mall. Bush Gardens was always a favorite to everyone. Anything just to spend time together. Those are wonderful memories that never will be forgotten. I truly love my Aunt and she will always be loved and missed. My thoughts and condolences go out to my entire family with this great loss. Aunt D, I Love You and will miss you!

May Our Lord bring you peace and comfort as only He can. I know that you will never forget that He is just a prayer away. I would be honored to be a comfort with prayer, hugs or all the love I can offer. Please remember, I’m available 24/7. Many prayers and much love to you all. Please do not hesitate to call me. Often times when things start to calm down a wee bit and family members and friends attempt to carry on with their lives, as best they can, it is then that support and Christian fellowship is so very, very important. Please allow those of us who love you so very much help you to carry that Oh so heavy burden. Mrs. Costine was surely a beautiful and loving example of what Our Lord would have us to be. The evidence is there for all to see in those she left behind.
