Darryn buddy, 25 years ago today affected our hearts and changed our lives forever. The pain is real and it never really goes away. Your lovely family is near and dear to my heart, especially on Christmas day. Thank you for your unselfish service and for paying the ultimate sacrifice in helping us be better Deputies. I love 'ya and miss 'ya buddy. You were an awesome partner and an even better man and I was proud to call you my friend. May you continue to rest in eternal peace. We will NEVER FORGET.
