DARLYNN XI KEMLING
Darlynn Xi Kemling was born Oct. 5, 2004, in Guangzhou, China. She returned to her heavenly Father's arms on March 2, 2013, at the age of 8.
Darlynn was adopted by her forever family on Feb. 18, 2008. She was welcomed home and cherished by her Dad, Mom, sister, brother; her extended family; her Baptist Church family and the community of Concordia. All who met Darlynn were touched by her strength and joy for life. She loved fiercely; talked loudly; suffered gallantly; laughed and smiled often. Darlynn loved playing with her brother and sister; singing; putting puzzles together; going to school; attending church and commanding the attention of any room she entered. Her favorite song was "Blessed Be the Name." Her favorite food was taco pizza and her favorite outfit was anything with a hoodie. Darlynn's Bible verse was Matthew 5:8: "Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God."
Darlynn will be deeply missed by her family; Dad, Brian; Mom, Lori; big sister, Sreya; big brother, Sajen and family and friends, too numerous to list.
