I knew your sister, who was my Mom's best friend. I remember the day you died, and the grief and sorrow of your family. And I remember their pride in your courage, your devotion to your duty to the public, and the love you had for so many. Your watch ended long ago, but you will always be honored, and loved by those who knew you.

A friend of Darrell's mother, Ann Gough
