I will forever be grateful for the support he gave to me and my family the day my dad died. I will miss the huge smile and great big bear hug he gave everyone. He will be missed. Rest in peace my friend and brother in Christ.

To the family, may God comfort you and give you sweet memories of Darren. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Our dearest cousin Cynthia Ann, your little boy is at peace. With greatest empathy, we know that the loss of a child is the deepest hurt moms can endure. We’ve been out of touch, but not out of thoughts.
Darren and I were the rebels of our families and I know, like me – we loved our family. But Darren was a real man - and a character.
Shirley and I, along with Christine and Kevin, as well as our dear departed, Ian love the entire family, through hard times and loving memories.
With our deepest love, my family will keep yours in our prayers and hearts...
