  2. Daryn was a gentle soul. He never met a stranger and if you were a friend you were family to him. He will be greatly missed.

  3. Sweet Sarg. I will always miss your sweet smile. Your occasional laugh (lol), but most of all your precious presence. You are at peace with Our Lord and singing with family and friends in Heaven. You will be missed always but what gives comfort is knowing that you are home. God bless your family and friends. God grant them the strength and love they need to carry on. Amen.
