Memories Timeline


  1. Darrell lived across the road from me growing up. We met each other when we were 4, and although we had lost ties for many years, we were best friends growing up. We played baseball and his brother Dennis would pitch to us for hours. We played in the creek, built dams & forts and played together all the time. When our house fell in it was their house we ran to in our Pajamas and bare feet. I miss those days. My deepest condolences to Julie, Dennis and all of his family and friends
