    • im so sorry for ur loss me and darthel was good friends went to school together hung out he was a great guy miss him forever

  • I send my deepest sympathy to the family. As hard as it is I must remind you to keep the faith. Please keep your trust in God. Things happen by surprise . Those things we can not prepare for. As we struggle to deal with such tragedy as death. Through all the pain we must remember to be absent from the body is to be present with the lord. Being in God’s presence is not a bad thing. Yes those that pass to the other side are missed on this side. Yes we have to ease the pain with our tears. So cry if you must, but I am certain that Darthel is in a better place. Do not bind him to this earth any longer. He has mounted up on wings like an eagle. He is now an angel that has flown to the heavens. Family release him and let him fly. I say to Darthel sleep on take your rest. Your family and friends love you but God deserve the best. Min. Aretha Ann Henson
