Darrell Bain
I don’t know what it is like to lose a spouse,
and have him no longer around the house.
But when my brother recently passed away
I’ll never ever forget that sad day.
Maggie for you and your family I will pray.
May God grant you peace and rest
I remember Darrell at his best.
When you were our neighbors next door.
always wished you lived there once more.
It is at times like this when a loved one has gone
We look back and have memories to help carry on.
May Darrell rest in peace is what we pray
and God be with you in these trying days.

Maggie and Family,
I was so sorry to learn of Darrell's passing. He was a great friend and business partner. I remember the good times going to Portland to pickup equipment for Eastern Oregon Amusement. As two car nuts, we talked cars but also of family and faith. His faith from early childhood carried thru life. His family was his priority. He was always in a hurry to get back from Portland to be with you.
In later years, it was all about the grand kids and seeing them grow.
I was blessed to have Darrell as a friend. May the peace that passes all understanding be with your family. May you take comfort in knowing that Darrell was loved by many and many are holding you and your family up in prayer.

Maggie, I send my condolences in this sudden Loss of Darrell passing. Your home was a peaceful setting and gave me great comfort Maggie for you provided a home setting everyone enjoyed.
Darrell being a 1st cousin in the family and a elder one to me. We shared the Car stories and my early years we shared experiences that carried our relationship thru the years. Then that beautiful woman Maggie changed everything, you were the light of Darrell's Life. Then along came the children, watching them grow up making the family complete. Darrell always told stories to me about each of the children and you Maggie. Now the grand Children grew into the Picture.
Cars / Cars was always part of sharing. But it really was you Maggie, you were the eye's and thrill of Darrell from the day he meet You. You two fell in Love and showed me that New fresh part of Life and Love. For that I thank you from the bottom of my Heart. I'll love you both forever and ever.
It broke my Heart knowing Darrell passed away. Maggie, I pray for your safe being and good Health, May Gods blessing be up on YOU --Never give up the great smile and unigue Laugh you posses. Your beautiful -so never give up -Your girl's and Jeff will keep you in there hearts and love as I will. Your the blessing of the family, so continue on. Straight Ahead for good is to come to you in the best of ways. Love Cousin Dudley

Dear Maggie & Family
I wish to send my deepest condolences at your loss.
Darrell was a great man, and a good friend. Though I didn't know him a long time, it was still meaningful. He was a a very passionate lover of both hot rods, as well as things of days gone by. Sometimes you come across an individual who shine brighter than most. Darrell was that guy.
They don't make them like that anymore. He will be missed.
