Darel you will be sadly missed by so many of your friends and family. God needed you to come home and be with him. We are glad the pain is gone and praise God he sent that old chair back to Satan where it belongs. You were such a hard worker at church. You were our best helper for the lunches on Thursdays. There wasn't anything you wouldn't do including being a door man and working the elevator. Make cakes pasta dishes anything we ask for you were always up for it. You will be missed but we know we'll be with you again someday. Thank you for your love and friendship! Rest in peace my friend. I know you're walking the streets of glory as a whole man.

Darel was such a wonderful helper at church! He treated our kids like they were his own. He would take our youngest for rides on his scooter and he thought that was the best thing ever! He was always there with a kind word or a wonderful smile. You will be missed by many, but God was ready for you! No more pain!
