  4. I had the privilege of working with Mrs Darlene at the hospital. She was very nice, that is, when you could stop her from cleaning&128522; She was a so dedicated to her job. Darlene was such a hard worker. I often told her I wouldnt be Able to do what she did or could I keep up with her. Even when she was sick, there she was, on hands and knees, scrubbing! I would often tell her she did too much. But she only replied with "its my job", although she knew others didnt do nearly all or as good as she did. Shed take up whatever wasnt done. I admired her greatly for that. She had pride in herself and in her work and that is what we should all strive to have in Our own lives. I now believe she is now able to rest and is enjoying a carefree, healthy life up above that we can only dream about for now. God Bless
