To Darrell's Family and Friends, Our deepest sympathies go out to you. May God, and the many good memories, sustain you; now and also in the future.. Our thoughts and prayers are for you and your families. Sincere condolences from Art Beerys, Smithville, Ohio

Darrell and Kay were like my 2nd parents growing up. Kim was my dear friend and I was always at their house. They made me feel so loved and welcomed, even telling me if I came over and they weren't there, to go in, get something to eat and wait till they got home. Darrel, Kay and Kim introduced me to crab legs, my fave food to this day, and Darrell gave me my favorite saying. "If you snooze, you lose"...lol. How I miss those days. Spread your wings now Darrell and fly. Give Kay a kiss for me and Grizzley a hug and a pet. All my love.

Please accept my sympathies.

While I didn't know Mr. Myers for an incredibly long time, I feel blessed our lives crossed paths at Brookdale Wooster. He was always so kind to me and made me feel very comfortable during Bingo. He was a wonderful, fun person, and I will miss him. Sending his friends and family many hugs and love.
