I remember going fishing with Darwin, laughing and having a great time. Never had a brother but if I would of, Darwin would of been my choice. He was always friendly and helpful in the boat and my only wish is that I would of been able to spend more time with him. Darwin told me once he could tell I never had brothers, by my actions. He told me I needed to grow thicker skin because I was too sensitive. Reminds us all how short life can be. He will be missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace Darwin. Peter Gallenberg Jr. & Linda
