The below eulogy was written by Kira (10), Darrel's brother.
Darrel: A fun loving kid that would do almost anything to bug me. Darrel
like many other children died from cancer.
He was a good kid that had a lot to say. Since he is gone we will have to
say goodbye to his sense of humor and criticism.
Darrel was the funny kid. In a lot of pictures he closed his eyes.
He loved Henry's horse Daniel and would always want to ride him. Once on
Daniel he went too fast and he was freaking out. Even so, it was funny.
He would most of the time bug me and Grandpa John with food. Even though
he did it to me I laughed.
Sometimes we would play hide n' seek. If Darrel was "It" he would count
too fast and we would have to boogie.
His funny bone has always been the strongest bone in his body. You gotta
hand it to the kid, he would have made a great comedian. We will all miss him
and I just wanna let him know he should keep working on his jokes!!
