Darlya's smile could light up a room, and her laugh brought joy to so many. Although she is gone from this life, she is smiling in heaven and not hurting any more. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time, and know that you and Darlya are in our hearts.Henry Fincher, Cookeville TN

I am so very sorry for your loss. At this difficult time please remember the Bible's promise at Acts 24:15, "There is going to be a resurrection." May the God of all comfort, comfort you in all your trials. - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 Sincerely, Amy Smith Jw.org

I worked with Darlya for several years at DCS. We were partners in mischief, she helped with my wedding, took road trips with me and my son to see concerts and too many work memories to list. I will always remember her beautiful smile and spirit. May there be peace and comfort during your time of grief. Darlya will forever be in my heart. Carissa Worm
