Darlene also cultivated lasting friendships wherever life carried her, and she will be deeply missed by many.

All who knew her have been inspired by the tenacity, courage, and positive spirit she displayed in her fight. She is survived by her husband, Clark Leonard Nulf of Hendersonville, NC and Hobe Sound, FL, her son David and his wife Mimi of Fairfield,CT, her son Daniel and his wife Colleen, of Stuart, FL ,and four grandchildren, Phoebe, Lila, Emily, and Wesley Nulf.

Tuesday, November 16, 2010 8:10 AM

Patrick Lee McMullen, loving husband, father and dedicated businessman, was called home to be with his Lord and Savior on Nov. 12, 2010. This day was chosen for him by God as he was knit together in his mother’s womb 49 years ago. It may seem too soon for such a vibrant young man so passionate about life to be called home, yet, none of us know the number of days we have here on earth. Patrick chose to live each day to the fullest in service to his family and clients. His greatest joy was spending time playing with, working alongside and loving his wife and children. His goal was to lead by example as he took an active role in homeschooling his children.
