It's not the length of life, it's the quality and hope for the future. You were both winners!" - Tom Finley"Darryl's faith in God, his faithful love and devotion to his wife of 31 years, and his care for others involved in/with life-threatening health conditions, is readily noticed in the writings of his book. His insight into suffering  - hers, his, his family's, and the wisdom he gleaned from it, lovingly blankets the reader with comfort and encouragement." - Joyce Webb
