    Dear Tanya and family,
    I met Darcy through his lines in his Life Thoughts and Learning blog. I admired his strength, faith and specially the love he expressed for his family and friends. I also knew him through my dear friend and co worker at Gibson Energy, Tanya. A loving husband and devoted father that enjoyed life at its fullest. Today I am so sad and I just want to humbly offer my deepest and sincere condolences to Tanya, Eric and Richard, and rest of his family. He will always be there for you.
    Love,
    Leonor

  5. Dear Zacharias family,

    My heart breaks with you for the loss of your beloved husband and father. It’s difficult to understand God’s will in the fallout of this tragedy. In my own life, when I experienced a similar loss in my own immediately family several years ago, the Lord’s presence was closer and more real to me than at any other time in my life. I pray that He will similarly be so close and real to all of you in this time of grieving. My family and I have upheld you in prayer, and we will continue to do so.

    Psalm 73:23-26

    23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you;
    you hold my right hand.
    24 You guide me with your counsel,
    and afterward you will receive me to glory.
    25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
    And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
    26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
    but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

    I pray that he will be your strength in this difficult time.

    Dear Tanya and family,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of working for Darcy at Enbridge. I especially remember his humour, easy-going nature, and his 100-day plan…he had just finished MBA school and wanted to make things happen. Later I appreciated his friendship and hearing about the joy and laughs his family brought him. My deepest condolences.

  13. My deepest condolences on Darcy’s passing. Darcy and I went to both College + University together in Brandon, Manitoba. It’s been a long time since we have seen each other, but I will always remember him for his amazing intelligence, being thoughtful and soft spoken, quick wit, and he was a heckuva pool player back in the day, as well. More recently, I came across his musings on his blog, and found his posts incredibly profound.
