Elaine and Jean-Paul Gauthier

Jean-Paul and I were shocked to hear of Darlene's death. We have moved from Walkerton last year so have lost touch with people as so often happens. Darlene was one of my bridesmaids nearly 43 years ago and she will always have a special place in our hearts. Please accept our deepest sympathies.

I am very sad to hear of the passing of Darlene. I met her and Ed many years ago when I started my business on Broadway> They are now together and can continue their kindness and smiles which they gave to me many years ago. Darlene was full of energy and had good advise based life experiences.
My deepest condolences to the family and friends,
Sigrid Wolm
