  • Sending thoughts and prayers to D’Lani’s entire family. I always enjoyed her family stories and hearing about all of her fabulous vacations. We are truly heartbroken and will miss her very much.

  • So sorry to hear about D’Lani. She was my business partner, mentor and friend for over 20 years. My sympathies for your loss. She was such a phenomenal lady and never spoke of being ill. She told me of her travels/adventures with her friends and sisters and it was evident that she loved them all. I know she is watching over us now. May the lord bless you and give you peace!

  • A beautiful loving soul and longtime friend of this family … D’Lani will be missed! May God take her in his loving care 🦋

  • Oh D’Lani.. I was so sad to hear this news, just today.
    Your smile and laugh will always be with me..
    Rest easy Delightful.
    I love you.

  • There are no words to describe my sadness. You were the best kind of friend there was. You were family to us and my boys were your boys. How are my Edmonds doing? You would say. Thoughtful kind words and always knew exactly what I meant when we spoke. You were one of a kind never Another like you. Your love for your family and friends was so compelling. Your stories always intriguing and your love for travel so interesting. We will forever miss you. Please watch over your boys. We love you aunt D’Lani.

  • My Princess D’lani,

    My Bobbsey twin, my true friend, the keeper of my secrets, godmother to my children, my “big sister”… My heart has an ache I have no words for.

    You were one of a kind… it was an honor to be your friend, and a gift to have you as mine. I didn’t tell you enough, how grateful I was to have you in my life and to have you be a part of my family. I know you know. I just wish I said it more.

    My boys loved you so, and were lucky to have you as their fairy godmother, their Aunt D’Lani.

    I am sure that your heaven has lots of glitter bombs, nail polish and accessories to match every outfit, a raspberry beret, a travel agent and the best chocolate cake in creation.

    Your laughter, especially when you’d really get going and the tears would run, your eye roll and patented D’lani stare at the absurd or stupidly ridiculous, your declarations of things that princesses just don’t do, your endless patience, your sage advice, and your unconditional love, I will keep these in my heart forever. Your Wilsons love you and I will, we all will, miss you beyond measure.

    Until we meet again,

  • I am so sorry to hear about D’Lani’s passing. I met D’Lani through a mutual friend, Krist Regan. We would get together for our birthday’s and Christmas whenever we could. Our celebration’s won’t be the same without her. I feel so fortunate to have known D’Lani, she was a Beautiful person. I did not know that she was ill. Keeping all of D’Lani’s family in my thoughts and prayers.
