    So sorry for your loss of a husband, brother, son and friend. I'm sure his death was a most difficult one to witness. ALS is a cruel disease. We will always remember Darrell as a positive and happy guy that always had a smile and an eager "Hello" when he saw us. Our thoughts and prayers to you all.

    My deepest condolences. I have many many memories of Darrell, but one I shall never forget, is the following. We had had snow and wind and our driveway had drifts in it. I got stuck in my mini van about half way down the driveway and was shoveling my way out when Darrell was driving by, stopped, drove in the drive, jumped out of his truck shovel in hand told me to move and proceeded to shovel me out. When I protested that I would be okay and he didn't need to shovel, he just gave me a "look", and kept on shoveling. When he had the drift shoveled away, I thanked him and all he said was "that's what are neighbors are for", jumped in his truck and left. That was Darrell!
