I am sorry to hear of Darrell's passing. It's been a long time since I've see him. We used to (a long time ago!) get together with the Eckhoff reunion. My parents, Don & AnnaMae Mehmen, used to visit Darrell's. My mom, AnnaMae, passed away in February of this year. May God be with all that mourn. And may you be assured that we will all be reunited by our faith in Jesus.
Angie, Nick, Steve, and Chamee,
I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Darrell was a great man and I know he loved his kids so much. I’m glad I was able to know him and let me know if I can do anything to be of comfort to you.

Angie and family,
Caring thoughts are with you at this difficult time. Our sympathies.
Judy and Jim Hegg
