I'll always love and respect Uncle Darrell. Having him stop by for a chat during his dirt road riding has always meant so much to me. Although he didn't become my uncle until I was five years old, he has always treated me just like all the cousins. There will never be another man like him. I am so thankful for the times we had together. I pray for comfort for aunt Teresa and all the kids. I know Uncle Darrell will be missed. I can see him now riding the streets of gold and blowing his horn and waving. RIP I love you Darrell Lee.

I am so sorry to hear of Daryl passing. He was such a wonderful and sweet man. He always had a smile on face that you couldn't help but smile back at. I do so appreciate all that he did for me when I needed it the most. He has an amazing family that I hold dear to my heart. My heart goes out to you all.
