My deepest prayers go out to the Harmon, Luster, and Aubuchon families. Darrell, or as I knew him, Bopo, was a great man and wonderful father & grandfather. He always made me smile and was always there to lend an ear or shoulder to cry on. He'll be greatly missed, but never forgotten. ♡ xoxo

A true definition of the word "friend". My family has known the Harmon's since 1987, when we moved into the neighborhood. They have always been very special to us. He will be sorely missed.
