Darlene dear rest in peace and may GOD be your shepper and may he bring you into his light because you was a good person and because trhough Sally you inspire more people that i can tell watching always make me laugh even when i was sad. I' m from Africa [Cameroon] and when i've learn on the 26 after the show that Sally is gone i've called my sister from Cameroon she was so shocked by the news. Darlene was a part of our life just like the other cast of BB we grow up watching her.My condolences to the family and all the cast members.

Darlene played a very exciting rolled as Sally in The Bold and The Beautiful, I really did enjoyed her and Massimo. She was really something else in The Young and The Restless as Rose DaVille. May God Bless Her as She Rest In Peace.
