My Mother Darlene was killed seven days before her birthday. The offender tried to run away without even trying to find out if she was okay. He is charged with Impaired Driving Causing Death, Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle Causing Death, hit and run causing death. At the time of this writing our journey through the judicial system has just begun.

My mom owned her own grooming salon; her love of animals was like no other. But her best quality was her love of people. She had the gift to make everyone she met feel at ease. She was always there whenever someone needed her. Many times she would know she was needed without having been asked. She was so loving, caring, and giving of herself. All those who knew her loved her. Her beautiful blue eyes and infectious smile will always be close to our hearts. My mom worked so hard for everything she had, and we were all so proud of her. I can’t even pick just one thing that I would miss the most because I will miss every single thing about her. The pain and grief in my heart goes beyond words, she had so much love to give and what could of should have been will never be. Just because someone chose to drink and drive.

Deeply Loved and Forever Missed

Your Loving Son,
Cory Southerland
