Then, now and forever you remain in the hearts of those who loved you. We were blessed beyond measure to have been a part of your life. I miss you more than I can say. 1-4-3

This man was one of a kind. I have put this memorial on line for him because he should never be forgotten. After all these years my love for him has not faltered, or diminished.

I have moved on in many areas of my life, but he remains in my heart and soul as bright a force as he was when he lived. Darren was raised to be decent, honest and caring and he was all of those things. He loved his family very much and for a short time we loved each other. On the lighter side, Darren was a prankster and a joker and you could always count on him to make you laugh. If it sounds like I have described the perfect man, I have - his name was Darren.

Please know when you visit this page and you see Darren, you are looking at a man who loved and was loved very deeply.

Darren James Mowl was on his way home from his first night on the job as a police officer with the Pinckney Police Department at 6:55 a.m. when his car hit a road sign post, traveled 30 feet more, hit a tree and then set on fire, authorities said. Officials from the Michigan State Police Department said the cause of the accident is unknown. No other injuries were reported. Mowl lived in Ypsilanti, MI. Family members were unavailable for comment.

For Darren:

I awoke today and found the sun was shining as before, I said with disbelief, "It shouldn't be there anymore"!

I heard the birds outside my window singing springs sweet song, I was mystified and quite confused for something here is wrong.

Yesterday my love was taken never to return and today the earth is still revolving, "shall it never learn"?

How dare the sun reveal it's brightness as if I should rejoice. How could the lord allow the birds to still retain their voice?

I raised my fists in anger, and hung my head to cry "How could you take him from me without one last goodbye"?

Then suddenly I heard a whisper, a voice of soft spring air

"Allow the sun to warm your heart for its something we can share. Enjoy the sound of birds who sing for they tell you of my story, I am held within the arms of God and I walk through streets of glory. Delight in having memories and feel not that I've died, for in a short and fleeting time you will be here at my side"

I know now that our love was true for his spirit shown to me, when I leave this earth forever, he is my eternity.

-Kellie Satterfield

This song always reminds me of Darren:

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared 'neath the stars alone
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain But I'd of had to miss the dance

Holding you I held everything For a moment wasn't I a king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say you know I might have chanced it all

And now I'm glad I didn't know The way it all would end the way it all would go Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain But I'd of had to miss the dance

Yes my life is better left to chance I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance
