Its still hard to believe you are gone. Im thankful I got to visit with you again at our family reunion, and now I wish I would have stayed a little longer and talked with you. Growing up with you was so much fun, and I have so many good memories of us cousins playing together. The trouble we would get into, and you always had my back. I lived with Aunt Nora and all you boys for basically half of my life. You are the one who set Richard and me up for a date over 30 years ago, and we are still married to this day. You reminded me about this when I saw you just a couple of weeks ago. We will miss you will greatly. I Love you cuz

Darrill was like a little brother to me. He lived with us for a short time when he was around 12 years old. Some of our last conversations included his desire to return to Potter Valley, CA where we used to live. It is a beautiful place with mountains and rivers and lush green meadows. Sorry we didnt get to go back there Darrill, but Im sure your heavenly home is even more beautiful. I love you and will miss our sometimes silly phone calls. May you rest in peace.
