"My darling Darrold.  I missed you so much on Tuesday when Jordan graduated.  You showed him so much love and support during your life with him.  I know that you are always with us and you are so proud of him.  Wish you were here with us in body, but I know that you were in spirit.  I love and miss you so much my brother, my friend, my supporter. Although it is a challenging time right now I know that you are with me to give me strength.  A piece of my heart went with you when you left the earth on 3/5/12.  Love you my baby brother."

"On behalf of my wife Marcia, I'd like to share one of Maxwell's songs and dedicate to her brother Darrold, on this the 3rd anniversary of his passing.

"This Man's Work"
Pray God you can cope
I'll stand outside
This man's work
This man's world
Oh it's hard on the woman
Now his part is over
Now starts the craft of the Father

I know you've got a little life in you yet
I know you've got a lot of strength left
I know you've got a little life in you yet
I know you've got a lot of strength left

I should be crying but I just can't let it show
I should be hoping but I can't stop thinking
All the things we should've said that I never said
All the things we should've done but we never did
All the things we should've given but I didn't

Oh, darling, make it go, make it go away

Give me these moments
Give them back to me
Give me your little kiss

Give me your...
I know you have a little life in you yet
Give me your hand, babe
I know you have a lot of strength left
Give me your pretty hand
I know you have a little life in you yet
Oh oh oh
I know you have a lot of strength left


I know you have a little life in you yet
Whatever you need me
I know you have a lot of strength left
Give me your hand
I know you have a little life in you yet
Give me your hand
I know you have a lot of strength left

I should be crying but I just can't let it show, baby
I should be hopin' but I can't stop thinkin'
Of all the things we should've said that we never said
All the things we should've done that we never did
All the things that you wanted from me
All the things that you needed from me
All the things I should've given but I didn't

Oh, darling, make it go away, just make it go away
  
Still missing you buddy!! Jordan
Miss you!!  Belisle
Love You!!  Mom"

"Hey Uncle D,

I just want to say hello because I miss you so much. I wish you here because  I want so badly to talk to you about social and cultural  history  and politics. I want to talk to you about  critical pedagogy.  I want so badly  to talk  with someone  who will get angry  and frustrated  with me, someone who wants to be drama with me and throw  his hands up in protest at the events that are unfolding, at the bulls hit I have to put up with in the American  education system.  I just want  to talk to you over a couple slices of NY pizza and  a can or two of Coke. I just wish  I had a quarter of the passion and perserverence you  had in your lifetime. Even though it's  been a couple years, you  continue  to touch me and motivate me, and I'm  thankful for that. I love you  Uncle  D."

"Happy Happy Birthday, Uncle D!

I love you so much! I wish you were here to visit my new little apartment, but I know you're probably more comfortable in heaven, just chillin' on a cloud and what not. You continue to be such a role model for me; I gather so much strength from you. In my darkest days I think of you and your strength and your courage. You continue to motivate me, and though I need to learn to complain less in life, I stay focused. It's the last year of school and I know you'd be proud of me. You'd probably be relieved as well, since it's taking a while but proud nonetheless. Thanks for always being there for me, even today. I love you, Uncle D. Enjoy your birthday, Mexican :-)"

"Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that save a wretch like me.  You loved this hymn so much my brother.  I know you are having a party.  Thinking about you soo much.  Yes, I hold the wheel in the car on all the turns.  I will always love you.  Till we meet.  Watch over us please"

"Happy birthday my baby brother. Mom and I placed a flower for you today. I miss you a lot, the pain is still there, miss you so much."

"Reading through the various tributes I realized the importance of living life each day as if it was your last. Life is a fragile existence.  Darrold lived life to the fullest and yesterday was the second anniversary of his passing.
I really did not know how instrumental he was in my son Jordan's life, but he was. The daily phone calls, the positive pep talks, the phone calls, the phone calls, did I mention the phone calls...you get the message. Today I'm wishing for one of those phone calls to my son.
Thanks for all you did and you are truly missed.
Beezle"

"To my Uncle Donald Duck!

I miss you so much! You have been on my mind so much and I am so thankful that you were and still are a part of my life. I know you would be here asking me. "You're almost finished with school, right?" Then I'd say, "Just about," hoping you didn't think I was wasting my time in school. I promise I'm not!

It has been a tough transition for me with relocating and living on my own, but I know you are watching over me. It is because of you that I can keep moving forward. There are bad days and then there are horrible/terrible days, but then I think of you and the strength you carried. Knowing your strength keeps me thankful for everyday and shapes my days into better ones. I am able to pick myself up just a little bit more.

I really wish you were here to talk to. I've matured a lot and I think you and I would enjoy talking about politics, world events, and the U.S. education system together.  But when I see you someday we'll have unlimited time to talk. And because I know you're watching everything I can ask, "Do you remember?"

I love you, Uncle D and always will.

Oh, and as for the boys that try to speak to me, I know you'd be proud of the knuckle heads I have avoided so far. School comes first, right Uncle D?!"

"Hi Darry D,  It is now two years since you left us for that place of peace, no more pain and streets paved with gold.  I really miss you my brother.  I know that you are having fun up there.  Visiting and cooking for everyone.  Look down and guide us D.  Especially mom.  Love always your big sister.  Mexican (Megan) is doing great in school.  You are pleased I am sure."

"Darrold's Birthday fell on Mummy and my church day here in Grenada.  That day the mass commemorated him and prayers were offered for his soul.  Prayers were also offered for Mummy and the whole family.
I sang his favorite David Greys:  Babylon and Sail Away"

Darrold and Aunt Uetta hanging out. where else would he be :))) see you Bro (Y)<3"

"It's been two months now my brother, and I miss you so much.  Last night I dreamt that you came and lay down beside me in my bed and told me everything will be okay.  It was as if though you where still here with us.  I patted you on the shoulder and I said to you just lay down son, yes, it will be okay.  Darrold, all is well, all is well with your soul!!!   Just rest my son, just rest."

"I How do you properly word your love for brother?  It is almost impossible.  What is the  essence of Darrold, What drove him?  I have concluded that he was a connoisseur of life.  As such he savored everything and everyone.  To those on whom he alighted, it was always for life.  As with  the wonder of the firefly and the shooting star we will always be in awe and wonder.  Why so fleeting?"

This tribute was added by Elona Beckford on 15th March 2012

"Just wanted you all to know that we have lifted the family up in prayers.  Just take heart in knowing that God will see you through this all, will not forsake you and give you the strenght and sustainance necessary to get over this initial hurt and it will never go away.  Just will not be as painful as time passes."

"I don't know what to say my brother.  You truly where one of a kind.  I raised you from a child and did my best to always protect and quide you.  Unfortunately, I could not protect you from illness.  GOD speed my brother.  Laugh, sing and walk with the angels in heaven.  You won't need any tennis shoes. (you never like them) - Rest in peace until we see each other again.  Love always"

"Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home."
