When I met U, I wasn't planning on falling in love with U. When I met U, I didn't realize how much our love would grow. When I met U, I didn't know what it was like to have the comfort of knowing that I have Someone very special, who is not only my lover, but my close friend. When I met U, I had no idea where are relationship would lead us, how beautiful that you would make my world. You are my world. but, now I know without a doubt ....... The luckiest day of my life was the day I met YOU!!!!!

I've known the Kitchen's my entire life. My mom and Connie went to Jr High School together. My oldest/longest memories are of Darrin and Darla. Darrin had a killer Tonka Truck collection as a child...that I recall. He was super fun in Glamis. An excellent mechanic for my VW in the 80's. I could take it to his house and he would work on it while I waited also. He has always been a solid guy. My favorite memory of Darrin is when my fiance was murdered and I needed someone I could trust to pick up the Harley for me and bring it back to the house. Darrin was the guy. Shortly after, it was my birthday and he knew I was really grieving so he took me out to cheer me up!! You could count on him for anything and I'm very sad that his journey has ended so quickly. My love and condolences are meant for all!!

The first time I met Darrin was on an RV trip in South Dakota. We needed a hose to be installed on our RV, and we were told Darrin was the man for the job. " Hello we just met you, can you work on our RV?" The funny part was he told my husband to go inside the RV and hit the gas. My husband being the new RV owner goes inside and gently pushes on the gas pedal. The next thing we see is Darrin climbing out from under the RV, goes inside and mashes the gas pedal to the floor. Roaring the engine to make sure his fix would stick. The look on my husband's face was priceless.

I worked with Darrin for about twelve years at Huntington. He was one of those guys that you sought out if your day was getting crazy. A moment with him could give you a respite from the reality of work. He coined the phrase "the moronic stare". I never knew whether he was giving it to me or accusing me of having it. Even though I now live across the country I will miss knowing that Darrin would be there for me if I needed him. Good bye old friend.
