Hey Big Brother ..Missing you more than ever. Thanks for letting me know that your doing fine and watching over all the craziness that is my everyday life.

Hey Big Brother - Miss you! Spent the day high in the Eastern Sierra with brother Chris just enjoying the beauty and peacefulness. Knowing that you were watching over us. Wish so much that we could talk about all the things I long to share with you. You would laugh to learn about my small acre farm over-run with cats, dogs and chickens! Think about you all the time...trying to be the best - Bowers- I can BEE. Peace & Love

Been missing you - so many things I want to share with you, to laugh with you about...would give anything to see your mischievous smile and hear your laugh. You are always in my heart, dreams and prayers. I hold dear all the gifts you have given me. Thanks for being a great big brother.

I still remember when you taught me to drive a stickshift at that empty parking lot on Wentworth in Sunland. After a couple white-knuckle loops around the lot you quietly told me to pull over. You got out, lit a cigerette, shut the door and said "Don't hit anything! - GO" Your patience and kindness will stay with me always big brother. Miss you - Bee Happy!

How do you put a lifetime of memories into a few words?It dawned on me that I'm probably one of the few people left that was there at the beginning of your life. I never considered I'd be there at the endI could go on and on about your life but I will tell this story instead: I need no reminders of out childhood but just in case I forget I can always look at the scar on my knee. A permanent reminder of our wild ride down that steep dirt road with both of us on my bike. Speed, wind in our hair, laughing like crazy. Little did we know the corner fast approaching would be so slippery and we'd be airborne in a split second. All I can say is air time: good. The landing needed some work! This was just one of our many shared adventures that I cherish. I miss you my brother, and my heart is broken.You left us way too early. We still had memories left to make.

Darryl, you came into my life the same day Chris did (our first day of 8th grade) and you treated me like family from that day. And in 1996 after my own father's suicide, you voluntarily stepped into the fatherly role I so desperately needed. You were never more than a phone call away when I needed anything. Your presence in this world made everything brighter, everything you had any contact with you made better somehow, whether it was cars, C-130's, or, especially, people and their lives.Darryl, I cannot begin to thank you enough for all you have done to improve my life, you helped me to stand when I didn't have the strength to stand on my own during the darkest chapter of my life, you loved me like I was your own son, and taught me so many things that I utilize everyday. I know that I would not be the father that I am today had you not shown me what it is to truly be a father.I love you very much, and will miss you always.Goodbye dear friend...

I am devastated by Darryl's death. As kids, we use to do everything together - we even said we were going to get married! That was until our mom's explained 1st cousins to us! The last time I saw Darryl was in 1979 when his brother, Randy died. It was good to see him but not under those circumstances.He was always kind,generous & thoughtful. I miss him a lot but hope to see him & others in the future.My heart goes out to Carroll & his family including Aunt Ann - I will keep all in my prayers.

Rest well, dear friend. You will be missed by those that loved you so much. My prayers are for your son, wife and family and friends who will think of you always with gratitude that we all shared a part of you. Your kindness, generosity and friendship will be missed.
