Dear Pat and Dawn
I remember fondly of our years as Darrells neighbor on 9th Street NW in Buffalo Minnesota. Dawn and my daughters grew up together, played together and Dawn and Tami graduated together.
I also have fond memories of Darrells life with Pat in Buffalo and how much we enjoyed playing 500. Darrell always over bid his hand and we would enjoy setting him.
Those were happy times for us all. Pat I sympathize for you on Darrells passing.
