September 15, 2010 "To the Gates Family,
I am sorry for the loss of your loved one. In a society that repeatedly bows to the dictates of what is popular at that time, Daryl was firm for his views on what constituted law, and was sharply criticized and ridiculed for them.
While on earth Jesus's opposers ridiculed and even put him to death. Yet, Jesus left all (including his opposers) a model to follow to gain everlasting life 1 Peter 3:18: Why, even Christ died once for all time concerning sins, a righteous [person] for unrighteous ones, that he might lead YOU to God, he being put to death in the flesh, but being made alive in the spirit. May you be comforted by that hope during this sad time..." - mdh John 5:28,29 (v.v., CA)
May 20, 2010 "A true leader during tough times. We should have more like him. You will never be forgotton....." - John Fiedler (Jersey City, NJ)
