Love and miss you dad.  I know you are at peace now and I'm sure Grandma Judy is there with you looking down on us and smiling.  You will be a part of me all the days of my life.

Darrell was the most caring Uncle.  My children will always remember the kindness shared with our family over the years. I know there is a great reunion taking place in heaven. We will miss you.

I will miss my brother more than I can express in words.  He was always very generous and treated me with great respect and love.  I will always treasure the way he loved me.  I could always depend on him for anything.  The world has lost a great man.  I have lost the world's best brother.  Till we meet again, Darrell.  Love you...

Darrell was a very talented, artistic man. He was a great Grandfather to my two boys, father to Kirsten, and the closest thing to a father that I had. It was amazing that he was able to do so much and was so independent right up to his last few days. Painting in Hawaii, eating lobster in Belize, tooling around in Porsches...awesome! We will all miss him tremendously!

Darrell was a friend you could talk to about anything, laugh with, shop with and watch the Redskins lose the Superbowl and cry with. If he was your friend he was your friend for life. Miss you DarDar.
