    Darrell was such a wonderful person and an exceptional nurse. What a tragedy and devastating impact on all who knew her.

    My wife and I are dear friends with Darrra’s sister, Joan Moore. We were devastated to hear of Darra’s passing and are praying for her entire family. Her funeral was a sad time but it was filled with hope for the joyous reunion to come in Heaven!! God bless this precious family!
