    My prayers and condolences are with the Miller family. Daryle will be greatly missed by all of us. May the memories of Daryle bring joy and comfort to all.

  2. Lois, so sorry to hear of your loss. I drove through Waupun recently & thought of you as I was there & wondered how things were with you. It’s been many years since we’ve been in touch, but I remember you telling about you & Daryle going to Hawaii frequently. Hope you were able to have many happy days together after retirement. You’re in my thoughts & prayers.

    Steve and family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I met your dad a few times when he visited Riverview. He was always so friendly! Just shows that ,”the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”! Thinking of you.

    Lois and family so sorry to hear of Daryl”s passing my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I think back to our high school years and all the fun we had together. I still think of Daryle as ‘Crawley'” though I can not remember why he was called that. I had planned on coming to the visitation but my car is in the garage and now it has started to rain so best I stay at home. Please take care of yourselves and be thankful you had so many years together.

    I see I had the wrong night so maybe I will be able to make the visitation tomorrow night after all if not my thoughts and prayers are still with you.

    My sympathies go out to Lois and her entire family. I’m sure Daryle’s passing leaves a huge void in all of their lives; but I’m also sure that they are comforted by the knowledge that he’s home with the Lord now. My thoughts and prayers are with you….
