The family and friends of a truly great man, Darryl Andrew MacPhee, gathered on the beach in front of Muddy Waters in Harrison Hot Springs on July 17th, 2008, to honor him after his sudden passing on July 12th, 2008 in Chilliwack, BC.

Now he rests in peace, free from the horrible black pain he suffered after loosing his only son Sebastain on December 6th, 2004.

He leaves behind awesome memories to the love of his life, Julie Robinson (Agassiz, BC), his mom Bev Sargent (Agassiz, BC), one brother, Trevor Cyba (Tracy) Columbia Valley, BC, sisters Colleen Peterson (Gerald) Bentley, AB, Jackie MacPhee, Edmonton, AB, Tammy Meyer (Brad), Camrose, AB, Shannon Arends (Gord), Dalmeny, SK. Auntie Donna Lyseng and Uncle Barry Robertson, Camrose, AB, Uncle Harvey Robertson (Sandra), Prince Albert, SK and many cousins, nieces and nephews and one great-niece and many friends who loved him.

Bev and the family would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the flowers, food, comfort and love shared.

A special thanks to Pastor Jim Flom for the beautiful service and for reading Darryl's good-bye letter, exactly as it was written (you are awesome). To Mary Murphy for her beautiful voice and harp, Tea for her song and to Allan Roth and the Mountainview Church ladies for the great lunch. If I have missed anyone, rest assured that you are appreciated and loved.

At the rising of the sun and at its going down....

We remember them.

At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter....

We remember them.

At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring....

We remember them.

At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer....

We remember them

At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of autumn....

We remember them.

At the beginning of the year and when it ends....

We remember them.

As long as we live, they too will live; for they are now a part of us....

as we remember them.

When we are weary and in need of strength....

We remember them.

When we are lost and sick at heart....

We remember them.

When we have joys we yearn to share....

We remember them.

When we have decisions that are difficult to make....

We remember them

When we have achievements that are based on theirs....

We remember them.

As long as we live, they too shall live, for they are a part of us....

as we remember them.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say.

But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.

Here, there's no more tears of sadness; Here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.

Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.

That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through.

God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.

As for your dearest family, They'll be here later on.

I need you here badly, you're part of my plan.

There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.

And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.

And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight.

God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years.

Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.

But do not be afraid to cry: it does relieve the pain.

Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.

If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.

But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.

I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;

But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.

It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too;

That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain;

Then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."

And now I am contented....that my life was worthwhile.

Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low;

Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.

When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind;

I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go....from that body to be free.

Remember you're not're coming here to me.

Friend, please don’t mourn for me

I’m still here, though you don’t see.

I’m right by your side each night and day

And within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I’m always near.

I’m everything you feel, see or hear.

My spirit is free, but I’ll never depart

As long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I’ll never wander out of your sight

I’m the brightest star on a summer night.

I’ll never be beyond your reach-

I’m the warm moist sand when you’re at the beach.

I’m the colourful leaves when Autumn’s around.

And the pure white snow that blankets the ground.

I’m the beautiful flowers of which you’re so fond,

The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I’m the first bright blossom you’ll see in the spring,

The first warm raindrop that April will bring.

I’m the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,

And you’ll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there’s no one to love you,

You can talk to me through the Lord above you,

I’ll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,

And you’ll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I’m the hot salty tear that flows when you weep

And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.

I’m the smile you see on a baby’s face.

Just look for me, friend, I’m everyplace.
