I went through high school with Darryl. We have been in contact off and on for 60 years. Sorry he suffered so much pain the last few years. He kept in close contact with God and wasn't hesitant about that fact either. I know he will be rewarded for that. Bless his memory and his family. Duane Hedahl, Class of 1949

I sure miss you, Grandpa. I have almost 30 years of wonderful memories with you. Seeing the sun shining this morning made me smile, thinking of you living a perfect new life with Jesus right now. Can't wait to see you again.

Mr. Eakle was a kind and loving man. He worked very hard and was loved by all. He loved is children and grandchildren with all his heart. He was always interested in what others had to say. He loved our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and is now with Him in eternity. I praise God that I knew this wonderful and gentle man.
