Dear Mr. And Mrs. DiLeo, Kimmie and family,
I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Kim's passing. We talked through Facebook and she was always concerned how I was doing. She never once complained or even say she was ill not even she was not feeling right. She was a true joy to be around. She would light up any room or place she went with her beauty and smile. I know her through Kimmie. She worked for me at the Old Forge Burger King and her friend Lisa Barry Sottile. She was one of the most sweetest, honest loving people I could of ever have known. Know that your are all in my thoughts and prayers. May God Keep you comforted with his love and surround you with some sense of peace now and the difficult days ahead. Dar take care of our friends and family that are up there with you. You are truly a beautiful angel. Rest easy my friend. You will always be loved and missed.

Dear Rose, Sam & Kim: My Deepest Condolences and Sympathy, My Prayers are with you. GOD has taken your Beautiful Angel home and to all whose life Darlene has touched I'm sure would agree that "THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO BRING A LIGHT SO GREAT TO THE WORLD THAT EVEN AFTER THEY HAVE GONE THE LIGHT REMAINS". My Hope is that this beautiful and wonderful YOUNG WOMAN knew how much she was ADMIRED and LOVED. Rest in Peace DEAR DARLENE and may the perpetual light shine on you.

Cousin Darlene, I can still remember playing in your back yard with Tammy, Diane, Toni Ann and Lisa around 1972. You and Kim were just little girls but were both so beautiful even then! So many years have passed and I still remember that day like it happened last week. I'm so glad we spent time together with you and your Mom & Dad last year. My heart goes out to Aunt Rose, Uncle Sam & Kim at this sad time and I pray that the love of all our families will help them through this difficult time.
