Betty and family, We extend our sympathy and know God will uphold you during this time. Although there is loss of a husband and father, there is also knowledge in the message of Jesus that he says, "Come to me....receive your inheritance prepared for you." Each of us has that promise which Darrell now has experienced.

Betty and family, I'm so sorry to hear of Darrel's passing. I worked umpteen years with him at Trail King. Such a good guy. He and Lee Tiede were the Jokers of the goosenecks. What a card! May God Bless and comfort you.

Sorry to hear of Darrels passing. I worked with him at Trail King in the late 80's. The Lord must have needed something fixed or built.
