    Dear Jeri-Jennie-Daris and the Schuurman families, Our deepest sympathies to everyone in the death of Darrel. Rich and I were glad that we could touch base with Darrel during our visit to North Carolina a few winters ago, as it had been many years that Rich and Darrel had seen each other. We had a very nice time "catching up" and visiting. May our Lord comfort, bless, and sustain you in the coming days. Sincerely, Richard (cousin) and Devonne Bos
