Thanks for taking the time to honor Darcy Jones and making this donation in his memory. Darcy was very kindhearted and caring. He made those around him feel heard and loved. When you spoke with Darcy, you knew he was in the moment and listening. Darcy had a way of offering advice without being forceful, blunt, or overbearing. Darcy’s infectious smile and witty personality made it impossible not to love him.
Darcy was a true American patriot, a hero, and a warrior serving in the United States Army including two tours for Operation Enduring Freedom. Darcy supported his family and his brothers and sisters in and out of theater. We would like his personal attributes of love, caring, and supporting people to be carried on in his honor. This is why we chose the Fisher House (thank you Mr. Jon Michael Cookson for the recommendation). After researching the organization, we learned about their mission, which is amazing. Even more impressive, 93% of the money raised goes toward programs that support our military. Even Darcy would say that's "awesome", a word he often used.
