Caleb,

Our family has been praying for you, Gina, your Mom, Chastity, and extended family. Your dad was a quiet, kind man, a lot like you. That smirk of a smile, you get that cute trait from him. I wish I knew him better but I am certain I get to know him more each time I spend with you and your beautiful children.

At your wedding rehearsal at the church, I felt miserable. I had to go outside because I felt like I could be sick, he followed me but I didn’t know that at that time. He quietly came up to me and made sure I was ok and told me that I should go home and skip the dinner. Being as I was the maid of honor, I thought there was no way I’d miss it, this was my best friends wedding rehearsal. He told me it was better to miss the dinner than to miss the party the next day. Wise words I followed, and he was right, I felt great the next day. He made sure to find me before the wedding to check on me, what a gentleman.

Hold tight to your memories and I pray they
allow your heart to feel some peace and comfort. I pray you have comfort knowing you will see him again one day!

My deepest sympathies,
Bethany Chesser

Betty and family,

Was so sorry to see the passing of Darrel as he has gone on to a better place in the journey of life. The hurt and sadness comes for the people he has left behind who will no longer get to enjoy him in their lives. I am praying that the Lord bless each of you with comfort from the memories you have of your time with him here on earth. Prayers and hugs to all of you

Our hearts are filled with sorrow today for my sister Mary and all the family.The loss of our precious Darell is so hard to bare.I have such fond memories when I'd , go visit during hay season driving the farm truck for Darell while he loaded the hay.He laughed because i was so short we had to find things to put behind me so i could reach the pedals to drive.I was praying to God please don't let me mess up.I will cherish this memory always.I will always remember his love of corvettes and watching the Mecom auto auctions on tv guessing what each car would bring.But most of all his love for my sister and all his family will be my fondest memory. RIP Our Awesome Brother In Law LOVE YOU ALWAYS.
