Mary and family,
I am truly sorry for the passing of Darren. I had the pleasure of teaching him English at Broadalbin-Perth Middle School. He was a very intelligent and respectful young man in my class. Darren was known for his athletic ability even back then and I will always remember that beautiful smile of his. He reminded me a lot of his sister Alana. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy and take comfort in your memories and that he is with Jesus.

Gone too soon. This is our 25 year anniversary of our undefeated CYO team. We talked periodically and you were one of the first ones to call when my Dad passed away. You'll forever be a friend and you'll always be the greatest teammate. My prayers go out to all of your family affected by this tragic loss. RIP friend!
