My deepest sympathy and prayers to you Shelly and all of Kyle's and your family. He was a kind and caring guy. He was always so friendly with a big smile when I ever saw him. Butch, always thought so much of him too when he used to run the Napa route to the Sand and Gravel pit. My memories go back to Darrin and getting to know all of your wonderful families, never saw any of you without a big smile. Treasure all of your many wonderful memories, they do help.Just know he is with you all of the time. He is watching over you and will be with you all each and every day. Love to you all.
