talk so much that you could not get a word in. All you could do was
listen, trying to wait until she was out of breath. She was fond of

babysitting young family members. Darlene loved to cook and share
recipes with her cousins Von and Joyce. They would talk for hours
about food.

read books to the young children in the family she babysat like
Joyce, Amber, Donnell and Donyell, Moses, and Trinity. She had a special song she would sing to Nylah, "Ny My My My My hey hey hey
sugar pie."
