Dear Lily and Katie,
My deepest sympathy to you at this difficult time.
I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciated the care I always received from Doctor Darren, from you and your staff when ever I visited your office. Darren was the best doctor I ever had and I felt he took a personal interest in what ever my needs were. He always made time to to listen and I could tell that he really cared for his patients.
There was always a real family feel at your office and I know that I will never find another doctor that will measure up to the care I received from Doctor Darren .
He will be greatly missed.

I've only know Dr. Wirtz since February, 2021. He was my weight loss doctor - I saw him once a month, and every time I came to the office, he said, "I've never seen you look better!" He was a wonderful person, always complimentary, always upbeat, sharing stories of his beautiful wife and daughter. Visiting his office was like going to your friends for a visit. I know I'll have to get another doctor, but I'll be thinking, "He's ok, but he's not Dr. Wirtz...."
Lily and Katie - I'm so sorry for your loss. We'll all miss him.

Lily, you may not remember me. But, we met at the first class reunion that you attended, in Craig. I love Darren, and please know you are in my prayers. I cannot imagine what you’re going through. The memories you have are yours. And thankfully those cannot be taken from you.
My buddy Darren. We had so much fun growing up together. Loved playing football and basketball with you. The conversations and the fun times we had. Have stayed with me forever. Love ya man.. Love ya

Dr Wirtz was my doctor for many years and was one of the most caring and thorough doctors I've ever had. When he opened his own practice, it was always such a delight to see how happy and relaxed the atmosphere was particularly when Lily and Katy were there. My sincerest condolences to Lily and Katy and family. He will be greatly missed.

To My Sweet Cousin,
After several long years of not seeing each other, we found each other a few years ago. Along with finding you, we got to meet your beautiful wife, Lily and precious daughter, Katie. We will so remember the Christmas you and your sweet girls spent in Meeker with my family, playing in the snow, and doing some serious visiting. We will so remember the strolls down Main Street in Grand Junction on our family outings. We are heartbroken that we will not be able to see you again. We will keep in touch with Lily and Katie as they are our family now and always.
We love you!
