  5. Donna & Family,
    I was so sorry to read of Darryl’s passing. I know as Brian did, Darryl had challenges over these last years. I like to think of him and Brian being with their parents catching up. I know their both families spent lots of time together as they were growing up. I know how hard it is to lose someone that has been such a huge part of your life. Savour the good memories. I’m thinking of you and all of Darryl’s family.
    Love Helen
