My tio Daron,
It took a bit for me to write this because it’s been hard to believe that you’re no longer here and accept that the words I may write were never said. It’s been so beautiful to watch you grow and create your new life and family, and I’ve been so happy to see you come around to all the family gatherings and get the little random calls from you.
Most of my memories flash as excerpts from our childhood and key moments as we grew older. When I think about you I can hear your laugh and the different expressions you would do when you were happy and excited, which felt like all the time because I can’t remember not seeing you without a smile. I think about a lot of pancakes, the smell of syrup and waking up on a weekend morning to you blasting music when I stayed with grandma too. I can hear you singing Cradle of Love on repeat when we were younger, but my favorite is when you would start off singing to Another Brick in the Wall..
I then knew it was going to be a good day and it always was. It played twice this last weekend morning on my way to work and all I thought was Daron is here and felt again, the day was going to be okay.
I’ll always remember the love and energy you’ve brought into all of our lives and won’t ever forget your smile and laughter. I love you.

No words can express the feeling of losing your partner in crime. I keep dreaming that you show up, or that you just watch us all. I expect for you to walk in through the door and say that your home. It’s different not having you here and blasting your music. There is no noise early in the mornings. No one scares me through out the day, and later on the prank wars would start. I have no reason to be cautious anymore and expect surprises. Parties and events won’t be the same anymore. You have always pushed me to do my best and lectured me to do what was right when needed. You were very proud of me to go to college. As you looked forward to taking road trips just to visit me, and to bring me wine to my dorm. You were excited to see what the future had for me. Now you watch over us as we will help watch over your loved ones. I promise to work hard because you always saw that light in me I couldn’t see. I promise to take care of Amari and Noah. I will always be by Mercy’s side. We have lost a very optimistic “Mr.Films”, but only God knew why you had to leave so soon. Take care of baby Q for us and enjoy paradise. There is no more suffering for you, but I want you to know that I love you allot. As we lost a loved one we know God gained an angel. May you rest in paradise Darrini❤️

Ooh Daron !
Never in a million years would I had thought that we would be losing you. You left my sister, but you left her with the joy of being a mommy.
Till this day, it feels so unreal. But I wake up each day telling myself that you are in a better place now. You’re no longer suffering nor in pain.
Wherever you are please look down at us & take care of all of us. I have one wish & I hope you can make it happen for me.
Give baby Quenton the biggest hug & a kiss he can ever have, never stop letting him know how much we loved him & missed him. We loved him from the day we found out he existed in my sisters tummy. Tell him that we knew he needed his daddy up in heaven with him.
Thank you for all the memories & all the love you showed us. For all the laughters & all the tears we shared.
I promise we will take care of Amari & Noah, they will never be left behind.
Fly high brother & light up the sky like a firework.
I love you & I miss you, see you soon.🕊♥️

My Brother Daron, I still can’t believe you are physically gone, and I probably will never understand it. You will be forever in my mind & in those minds of who had the opportunity to know you. I will keep this short and to the point as our random text & phone calls were. Every time we spoke , the energy that came across was always warm, positive, and the joy of the moment. I regret not spending more time in person, face to face, to be in your presence… We always say, there will be time to get together, but that time is gone and I am truly sorry…. We will never get to have that backyard basketball rematch we had talked about or play in a turkey bowl , the little things that mean so much when you look back. You are Loved and Honored. Love You . Dean.

You’re the lovely Brother I’ve adored since you were small, And for me the day you left us was the saddest time of all. But all the memories that we shared from when you were a boy, Have only forever filled my heart with happiness and joy. You grew up and proved to be a man both fair and true, and every day through my life I will forever think of you.
Love you so much , and miss you dearly.

So now I ask you lord, Bless my brother Daron with the abundance of your love and mercy. Cover him with your grace. Let Daron feel your tenderness touch his soul. Let Daron know your mercy sets his spirit free. I present to you, oh lord, My love for my brother Daron.
Open up the heavens to him. Bring him great peace and joy.

My beloved son, you gave me so many years of happiness as my son. You were very close to God and that gives me peace knowing that you placed your life in his hands. I will miss your calls and your messages just to wish me a good day at work, or to ask me what we were doing that day, your last words were "love you mom". I will forever cherish every moment we had with you. You are now with your beloved sister Tess, I know she was very happy to see you again., and you to see her. I will see you again too. You will always and forever be in my heart. Most of all, I will miss your beautiful smile, YOUR MOM
