to karla erin and family you have my sympathy in the loss of husband father and grandfather. he will be greatly missed.
My family and I are sorry for you and your family’s loss. Daryl is a great guy and one of the guys that introduced me to hunting. He took Eric and I out antelope hunting to Canota Basin south of Wall, SD when we were freshman in high school. I think we went out in an old LTD and it rained alot. We met the whole Hardy clan out there. Eric and I stayed up late and go into some trouble – ha! Daryl also took us pheasant hunting at the Hodorite Colony. Great guy and I know he and Eric are catching up on old times right now.
Love – Matt and Chidawn Rippentrop (Hot Springs, SD)
