There aren’t enough words to describe the beauty of “Darrell”. The twinkle in his eyes and his contagious laughter drew us in to what quickly became a close friendship. He and Brenda welcomed us into their hearts. He was generous with all he possessed and never hesitated to share his advice, wisdom, humor or labor. If the pain that we carry now is the price we must pay for having Darrell so deeply touch our life, then we gladly bear it . With much love comes deep sorrow. As our time comes, I know you will be on that shore to welcome us “Home”. We love you
