So heartbroken to hear of your passing. As a neighbor and friend of your son Darrell, you always made me feel like a part of the family.As a young kid and through my teen years I always enjoyed watching you dance around your house and hearing you sing along to the radio when one of your favorite songs would play. You'll be greatly missed. Fly high and dance with the angels in heaven. It was a great honor knowing you.
