Dear Darrell,

Thank you for giving the service at my father's funeral and helping us put closure to his life. The scriptures you choose gave us peace and comfort. I especially enjoyed the time we spent at Russell's and the point that "Everyone has a story" especially rings true. I have taken this to heart and make an extra effort to listen to all my patients' stories.

You have an exceptional gift and I am glad that God has chosen to use your talents well. You have changed the way I practice respiratory therapy and have made a better person out of me in the process.

I thank God that our paths crossed and I wish you and your loved ones much happiness.

On behalf of my brother, Scott, and myself, we'd like to thank you again for all of your efforts in making our mother's service one of the most special and memorable events of our lives. Everything was perfect!! (And Mom would have loved that!)


Thank you for your great presentation for my dad's service!

I appreciate all you said, you spoke well, about his life, you have a gift for putting all this together, in short time, allotted!

Thank you again from myself, my sisters, his wife, and all our family.

Thank you Darrell.

You did speak from the heart, and your compassion for our entire family was evident. You took a seemingly impossible task, and made it look effortless. I was there when you interviewed my aunt, and I have to say that you have a great gift.

I would highly recommend you to anyone I know going forward. It wouldn't have been the same without you to lead the way.

God Bless You!

I can't tell you how many people came up to me & commented on how beautiful the entire service turned out. I know my dad would be smiling from heaven!


I just wanted to thank you again for the beautiful service for Jan. Your words resonated with many of the people there as well as with me. Everything you said was perfect. God has always been with me when I needed him most and I believe he had a hand in bringing us together. Your kindness and support helped me through a difficult time.

Hi Darrell,

I just wanted to follow up and let you know how happy we were with the service you provided ... many people told me that evening what a great job you did, and how warm and personal the whole service felt ... very comforting!

Thank you so much for presenting my Mom's life so wonderfully so we could just listen and try to process what had happened the last few weeks.

You are amazing at what you do, and the world is lucky to have people like you in it!

Thanks again.
