(to paraphrase - Clara Ortega) . . .
“To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other’s hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys.”
And now, Darrel, with your passing: we live outside the touch of time. But in spirituality, your brother spirit will always be held within your older sister’s heart.
Love you, Karen Ann

They say some never know what true love is. I saw the love Darrell and Liz had for each other. Every time he talked or saw Liz his face lit up and a big smile was one his face. They had true love. Even though he is gone from this earth I know Liz will hold him in her heart forever. They had a love some will never know. So sorry for your loss but I know he will be with you forever.

I remember Uncle Darrel carrying bags of concrete and building a fish pond under the deck at his house. He was always tall, strong and tan. It was always a treat to see the vision he had in his mind become a reality.
