    Darrell you will be missed by many. 🥰You are an amazing man.😊 The love for your entire family is so dear. 💞 You loved your sweet bride with such tenderness.💘 I loved hearing my mom talk to you both on the phone when I’d conference call you with her from her care facility. You were so excited when she survived COVID-19. So many fun happy memories of the younger days when you and Sandy were friends with mom and Dad. You and Sandy have always had love to spare for my siblings& I and my mom, after dad left. You always showed us love and good times. Jokes, stories, laughter to chase away tears. My mom Dorothy treasures you both. Until we meet again. Love and prayers to you all. ❤
