I would like to send my deepest and heart felt condolences to Daryl’s family. I was out of town and I’m sorry I didn’t get to make it for his services. I thought alot of Daryl. He was always talking about his family or wanting to help out with diffrent benifits within the city. He was a great person and will be missed. My prayers and thoughts are with you. May God bless you in this time of need.

Daryl was one of my best friends. I just found out about his passing and wish I could have been there at his funeral. I only knew him for a short period about four years ago but I had the privelege of spending many many times speaking with him, playing volleyball and laughing. He helped me through a very tough time in my life. I don’t know how many hours he spent just listening. His daughters babysat for me and also inspired me. I don’t think I have ever met a more profound and caring man. I would like for his daughters to know I am here if they ever need me and if they remember me. To his daughters, your father was such a dear friend, a wise man, and always happy. I too lost my momma and daddy when I was young, only eleven. I’d like yall to call me sometime. 6937905 I love you all. God bless you,

Dear Julie,

I can’t even begin to understand what you’re going through right now except to know it shouldn’t be happening to you at such a young age. You and your sons are in our hearts and prayers right now.

My hope is that God will grant you peace and comfort.

Sincerely and with love,

Aunt Kathy
