    He will always be remembered as you share the stories and the memories of how he lived his life and how very much he meant, may you find comfort...And, throughout this difficult time, may you also know the deep sympathy and concern that is felt for you and all your family. I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5

    I knew Darrell from the Myesthenia Gravis Support Group. He was a very caring person. We used to share ideas on our vegetarian diets! I was very sad to hear of his passing. He will be missed. Fran
