    Dear Wilma and family, I will truly miss Dirl when I go in Wal Mart. He always teased and cut up with me when I went in. I will be thinking of you and praying for you during this time. God bless you all. Suzanne

    Just learned of Dirl's passing from my sister Mary Maiden. Always thought the world of him. May he rest in peace in the arms of the Lord. Semper Fi!
