I was looking to see if Daryl was on FB as he was in my dream this am. I used to be called Patty and knew him in Vermilion. Saw him once in San Diego around 1979. Sad to hear he went on so young. He was a nice guy. Feeling sad. But I believe a dream is a visitation. How nice he came to visit as I’m going thru a really hard time. Hope you are well, if you read this. God bless you. With love and appreciation for Daryl. Alara, January 10, 2020 Toni - I'm so sorry to find this and even sorrier that it took so long. My deepest sympathy.
