It was hard to see Darrell when his heart no longer let him do all that he liked to/was driven to do. Psalm 23 takes on new meaning as Darrell would pray it.
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want; you bring me to green pastures for rest and lead me beside still waters renewing my spirit. You restore my soul.
What a good friend he has been these 24 years
