    Darrell was a wonderful neighbor to us for the last 15 years, ever since we moved to Buffalo. He would come and plow us out and not say a thing. We thank him so much for that. We are thinking about you, Pat, Andy and Jenny and pray that you will find God’s comfort during these very, very difficult days. May the wonderful memories you have of him help you make it through.
