I am truly at a loss for words. Darrin was an all-around kind person, soccer extraordinaire, and a wonderful family man. He was never without a smile on his face and always had a funny story to tell. (I'll never forget when he told us years ago about what he did to urge Joeylynn to pick out a paint color for the walls...ingenious! ) Joeylynn, Caitlyn and Colleen - our hearts and thoughts of comfort go out to you and the rest of the Collins family. May Darrin rest in peace. Love, the Levengoods.
