    To Darwin’s Margaret and family, Mark Jackelen and I are very sorry to hear of Darwin’s passing. He was such a great, fun and happy guy and he will be missed. Mark enjoyed working with Darwin at Ford Motor Company and we especially enjoyed his and Margaret’s visits to Mark’s barn near the New Richmond Airport. God Bless you as you navigate life without this wonderful man! Pam
