  • Uncle Darrell I love you and you will be missed. Thank you for giving me the opportunities as a young man to have responsibilities beyond myself. I have several memories with you from making homemade ice cream in the driveway to raising pigs which allowed me to buy my first car. There are so many stories that make up a part of who I am today. You will forever be love, thought of, and talked about in stories to my kids and grandkids.

    Love, Johnny
