Darius was a great man and helped me more than words can ever say! He sponsored me for 11 years and I thank God we crossed paths. I am going to miss him so much and I am so grateful for the time he took for me and all the knowledge about life and recovery he instilled in me! He was such a great person to look up too. He was so kind and compassionate. I wouldn’t be the man I am without him! I am going to live my life in a way that he would be proud of. So grateful for the time we had together. His unconditional love and guidance truly changed my life and the lives of those I know! I could never repay him for all he had done. I love him with all my heart and will never forget him! R.I.P. Darius

Darius has been called from labor to rest. God gifted me with the privilege of watching Darius go through a fundamental mental and spiritual transformation from which he emerged a Messenger and a helper of others. Darius will live on in my heart and in the hearts of many others. Prayers for Peace and Comfort from the Lord Jesus for the entire English family. Love and Hugs! Mercedes Royletta Horace
