  13. Susan,Kevin and Lauren.
    I was so heart broken for you and your family on the news of losing your Son. It doesn’t matter if they are young or older its a piece of your heart that is broken when you lose a child. May God give you strength to get through this.

  14. I can’t even begin to fathom this. Daryl, you were always so upbeat whenever I would see you at work, and I’m sorry I never got to experience life with you outside of that small scope of working in the restaurant. I wish we got to hang out and spend some time together, even just once, so I could’ve seen the real you. I hope that wherever you are now, you are at peace, and I will keep your friends and family in my thoughts during this time. Miss you, bud.

  15. I don’t have the encouraging words to share in a time like this so know that prayers and positive thoughts are heading your from me and my Family.

  16. Words can never express how sorry I am for your precious loss. Daryl was such a vibrant young man. Even though I only met Daryl a handful of times over the years, he made a lasting impression on me (and Katie, at The Pointe pool a few years ago), and will never be forgotten. I wish I was in GA to give you all a big hug.

  17. Daryl, working with you for such a short time felt like I had known you for a while. You are such an incredible dude and an easy going guy. Such an amazing spirit that will live on. Rest easy brother. Never forgotten.

  18. Daryl, my main man, you are not gone or forgotten, you will be alive as long as people talk about you and the inspiration you gave us. I love you man and you’ll always be one of my brothers. I know you’re up there mad at how upset we are, but it’s not that we are sad, it is just that we miss you. You’ve made us all better people and will continue to do so. Much love brother, see you on the other side

  19. Our hearts are aching for all of you. We will always remember Daryl as we shared many years of soccer together. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you all hoping for much peace.
    Love, hugs and prayers🙏🏻

  20. Daryl lived life to the fullest and beyond. From the little 5 year old running around with Michael on & off the soccer field to the 24 year old handsome man he had become. I will always remember the beautiful smile that never left your face and the outstretched arms every time I saw you, while calling out “Momma Z”. You were more than a friend to those you cared about and intensely stood by them no matter what. Your love for family, friends & life defined you. I love you now & will love you forever. Rest In Peace my sweet Daryl. 😘 🙏

  21. Our hearts are with you. We have such great memories of Daryl during our soccer years with him. Thoughts and prayers for your family as you go through this.

  22. Wish I could be there in body, but know that I’m there in spirit. I’ve thought about Daryl every day since his passing. Andrew’s family now knows every detail there is to know about him! Sending love and healing thoughts.
