Not sure what to say?

I worked for Daryl years ago, as I was getting ready to go off to Bible College, and our families were once neighbors. What I loved about Daryl, is he would always challenge me on the word and on doctrine, and encourage me to search the scriptures out for myself. I can remember riding back and forth to a job in Tappahannock and he would be playing Keith Green, and within a few months I had bought everything Keith Green had ever recorded. Thanks Daryl, for making a such a impact on my life,...

Dear Lynne, William and Olivia, words cannot express how sad we were to hear the news of Daryls passing. We have very special memories of you as a young family when you came to New Life Church, New Milton. We can't help but smile when we think of Daryl and the times we met up or he would ring us up...always reminding us that he was still handsome! We have valued your prayers for our family over the years and will continue to pray for you all. With our love Kim Hicks (New Milton, England)

I was one of Daryl's friends in high school. He always had such a zest for life. Later I bumped into him in Richmond, and discovered his passion for God. We will miss you brother, but we will see you again some day.

I had the pleasure of Daryl's friendship for the past 15 years. What an incredible man and amazing friend he was. He gave me work when I needed it.
He was always supportive and ready to help everyone he knew whenever the situation arose. And most importantly, he was a preacher, a true disciple of Jesus. He always was quick to remind me of the importance of our faith. I will never forget him. Much love to you Daryl and thank you for all that you brought into so many lives. God...

Darryl was always friendly in high school. I never saw him in a bad mood. He could always lift your spirits. I'm sorry he left us so early, but we know he is with our Lord. May our Lord hold us in His arms and bring fond memories to always remember such a wonderful person. Nancy Cunningham (Richmond, VA)

Family I am so sorry I can't be there tomorrow. I am Daryl's cousin and boy do I have stories. Dennis knows...I talked to him a while back and we promised we would keep in touch. We didn't do such a good job of that. I will miss him a alot. He always made us laugh..and was a very good artist. We had some times when we were young and believe me he gave me a hard time but I will always love him. To Danny and Dennis I Love you guys and to Daryl's wife and children I wish I could have met you. I...
