Dear Darryl - we have never met, but I have known of your name for the past 9 years.

Let me explain: I love Pt. Isabel, and my favorite part about it is the bench bearing your name. That bench overlooks City of San Francisco and Golden Gate Bridge, and sometimes I spend hours sitting there while Holly (my dog) falls asleep on my chest after a long walk

That bench has made a difference in my life as well as Holly's. I would like to use this Memorial Day to honor you, the hero I've never met. And I would like to tell you that not only have you touched the lives of everyone you have met, you have also touched the heart of a stranger, and despite the tragedy, your legacy lives on.

Thank you
