    Eric and family, our thoughts are with you. Darrel was out at our place a short time ago and we had the nicest visit. He was a wonderful person and will be missed!

  2. Rev. John E. Raschick

    We had great times of fellowship, would sit for hours in Darrel’s garage or house and just share about how good it is to have Christ in our heart and make Him the Lord of our life by just asking Christ in our heart, and knowing that, that the reason God created us is to worship Him and truly make Christ our Lord by asking Him in our heart. It is comforting to know that Darrel is in the direct presence of God whom he loved so deeply. Yes, this temporary separation is hard, but like Darrel would always say, there is nothing in this world that can give hope and comfort and peace like God through His Holy Spirit can. We will miss you on this earth Darrel, but if you have Christ Jesus as your Lord, you have that blessed assurance to be reunited once again with him, and together we will all give honor and glory and praise to our King. He would share how vital it is to have the Word of God and Christ in your heart, John 3:16. Continuing to pray for Darrel’s whole family. Rev. John Raschick
