Dear Terry, Dan and I were shocked to hear of Darrells passing. Hearing that he had been ill had also been a shock. The years have flown, and our loss of family has stretched over the years. Wishing we could have been there for you and Darrell.... Sending prayers to you and the rest of the family.... One piece of solace is that he will no longer be suffering... May he rest in Peace. Do you think Darrell and Rodger are sitting on a boat fishing watching us? Dan and Rozann

I only met Darrell much later in his life. My memories of him are of him jumping to his feet to dance to a song he heard on the juke box. The big smile he'd get on his face when a child thought he was Santa, because he had that big white beard . The he would light up when he saw my dog, and the way my dog would wag his tail if I just said Darrell is coming to see you. Darrell , often called my house and said let me talk to the dog, or laughingly asked if I had scratched him behind the ears yet that day. I never heard Darrell say anything bad about anyone else and if anybody said something mean to him he just shrugged his shoulders . I think everyone should have a friend like Darrell in their lives . I miss him.

Terry, we are so sorry to hear of Darrell's passing. Our hearts and prayer's go out to you all. Chromedome, as he will always be to us, always had such a beautiful smile and a little devilish glint in his eyes. I'll never forget the day he rode his bike, with you on the back, clear across town to Plainwell Ice Cream to get an ice cream cone for you two. But left you there as he started back home to get some money. Always looking after his little sister. Or watching him taking you by the hand, to cross the street to go to Grandma Meacham house. You two sure had some adventures. Sending our Love Terry Bug, Donna & Brent
