My sincere condolences to the Estes family. Darnell´s smile radiates even now, as I reflect on his being. I will truly miss his presence. But I know that to be absent from the body that Darnell is present with the Lord and his humbling spirit and warm smile will always be a comforting memory. Gone but not forgotten my dear friend. Peace be with you.
