Dear Barbara and members of the Wilson family, We are so very sorry to see that Darrell has passed. You have both been wonderful friends of the Prince family and I personally will never forget the wonderful opportunities to be his doubles partner during tennis tournaments in USTA.
Barbara, mom has just been released from the hospital and we have just learned of this or we would all be there with you. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May the wonderful memories you have as a family provide some comfort during this very difficult time.
Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
Much love from
Betty Jo, Mike and Pam Prince

Dear Barbara, Sandy and Steve,
My heart was torn this evening when I suddenly saw Darrell’s onituary in the newspaper. I was completely astonished, because I had no idea that he was sick. Please accept my sincerest sympathy for your loss. Darrell was such a dear person. My mother loved him and his family fiercely! I can hardly believe that only Sharon is still living. I would be there now to pay my respects this evening but I damaged my car yesterday afternoon. I am waiting on an insurance agent to tell me if it is safe to drive it or if I need to drive a “rental” till it is repaired.
You are in my heart and in my prayers. May God walk with you theough this valley.
Deepest Sympathy,
Karen Sherrill Guinn

Darrell was one of the nicest guys you’d ever want to meet. We’ll miss him as part of our McDonalds gang. But, we’ll see him again when we also cross that river. Great to have known ya, Darrell.
