i am very sorry for your loss. I hope you find comfort in your memories of Dearil and from others who remember him fondly. Psalms 147:3 says; "He is healing the broken hearted ones and is binding up their painful spots". God, as the hearer of prayer, will comfort you in the days ahead as you remember him.
Marilyn, you may not remember me but I am the daughter of Bonny Wright of Borger. My daddy worked with Dearil on many jobs when I was a young girl. I remember you, Dearil, Sandy and Timmy coming to our house.
My Dad loved Dearil. I have spoken often of you and Dearil , over the years, with a Amarillo friend, Jim Whattenburger.
I am deeply sorry for your loss! I pray that God's peace surrounds you and your family.
