Days go slow and years go fast. It seems like yesterday Darrell was teaching me how to use a catcher’s mitt in Uncle Leon and Aunt Duell’s front yard. I should have thanked him…I could have made time to visit. All my “should haves and could haves” are worthless. So having said that, I respected him and he was a good man in my eyes.
