    Loretta, Tim & family; I am saddened to hear of Darrel’s passing. My friend & co-worker at St. Jude Medical for almost 13 yrs. We started a week apart from each other and worked side by side ever since. My memories of what a fine man Darrel was will forever remain with me. He had a wonderful heart and never had an unkind word to say about anyone. May he rest in peace and may his wonderful outlook on life bring smiles to all who knew and loved him.
