I miss you more every day!!! I can’t believe you are really gone…I know you are watching over us and taking care of us as you did on earth!! Not sure why you had to go so soon and will never understand but you will forever be with me in my heart!! Madison, Brayden & Cameron miss you very much and we all love you more than you could ever imagine!! You were and still are the best dad a girl could wish for!!! I love you!!!
My thoughts and Prayers to the family of Darold. He was a good man and I will always remember him as he taught me when I was a dispatcher for Elmwood Police/Fire back in 1985. Heaven has another great angel watching over everyone.
Darold may be gone but his memories will last a life time.
May you find comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish always, and strength in the companionship of those who share your loss…. I have learned never to underestimate the healing power we all have. It is always there to be used for the highest good. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4) May it be a source of inner strength to know that there’s a loving God watching over you, and that, throughout this time of need, He’ll stay close by your side.
I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5
