Its been just about 7 years since pappa has left us for his heavenly home, and although he indeed is with Jesus, his wife and loved ones, we still miss him so much! And one day we will all be together again, what a wonderful reunion that will be. Love u pappa❤

Dad and I had a great relationship his entire life. If i was able to now chose anyone as my Dad it would be him. I love him so. I really miss him now. He gave me his looks so every time i look in a mirror i miss him more. As i sit teary eyed thinking of all the fun we had growing up I think of the great time that Mom and Dad are having now.. With JESUS.. See them soon.

So sorry for your loss. The Darst family lived next door to us in Gahanna. I think I spent more time at your house then mine. Jerry was a very kind and loving man. I know your hearts are breaking right now but remember he is in a better place and we will all meet again.

My father-in-law Jerry T. Darst(I called him Papa)was one of the most humble, considerate, and faithful men that I've ever known. He had a very gentle spirit, and a tender heart that loved his family very much. I miss him, but know that i will see him again. You are finally home with your beloved Savior, and i know that Jesus welcomed you with arms wide open. I love you Papa. See you later.

Grandpa, It's hard to believe that you are no longer here. You have always been a very loving,gentle,kind and devoted man. Even though it saddens me that you are no longer here, I know that you are in heaven happy with Jesus. I love you grandpa and I know that I will see you again someday,
Love your grandaughter,Jennifer

I had the pleasure to grow up with Jerry and his whole family! Angie being my very best childhood friend! Jerry always welcomed me into his home! He loved to see us kids laughing having a great time! But what he loved the most was watching his children around the piano singing! I love to watch him as he just glowed hearing their beautiful voice as he closed his eyes and worshiped the Lord! I love you Jerry! Thanks for being the Husband, Father, Brother, and friend! our loss is heavens gain! See you agian one day!
