I knew Darin as a child when he lived near me and my family. I remember he & Dewayne, his brother, being at my house & playing with my girls. One memory of Darin is that he & Dewayne dressed their black poodle in bandages and one of Darin's pair of underwear & set him on a table in the backyard. That dog never moved. It was so cute to watch them with Pierre. Those kids could do anything with & to that poor dog and & never tried to bite any of them. Darin would just laugh at all the antics they pulled. He loved having fun.
