    As a vetran I think I will ask the boss for the day off Thursday to attend the services at Jefferson Barracks, that is if Chris doesn't mind. I will be driving 2ndLUV paying tribute to him in two ways.

    Many here know Darrell Graves aka Vette81 many may not (check out his website . Darrell has been in for the fight of his life for sometime now. The last event that I saw Darrell and his wonderful wife Chris was CruiseFest III 2006 at Bowling Green, KY.

    His pressence here at CAC and in our Forums has been limited due to his illness. I am very sad to hear of my Friends passing. I believe he is were he should be and things are better for him.

    I need to say a few things about my Friend before I post futher information about his pending services.

    Darrell and I met online when we had the Registry startup, 1998. Then we met for real at "Rendezvous 2001". We had many great talks about Corvettes, Viet Nam and life in general. Darrell and I were in Nam at exactly the same time and even think we may have been in the same places, but niether of us can remember ever meeting prior to the 1981 Corvette bringing us together.

    A great man, a larger than life man at around 6' 6" or so, but the heart of Bambi and the soul of a Saint.

    The Corvette world doesn't skip a beat when someone like Vette81 dies, yet it's people like Darrell that make owning a Corvette and sharing the memories the experience WHAT it's suppose to be. I've met many of the great names involved in the Corvette World and I'm just as impressed with friends like Darrell as I am the name droppers... Our hobby just lost a great enthusiast and human being.


    From Left to Right:
    Darrell (Vette81) & Chris, Dale (DDLS)., Me (Rare81) & Bob (NUT).




    Information below is provided Bladie88 Ron H.
    Funeral arrangements for Darrell Graves are as follows:

    Visitation will be Monday August 20, 2007 from 2:00-4:00 with a chapel service following at 4:00 at Madison Chapel Funeral Home 8521 Highway 72W, Madison AL. Darrell will then be flown to St. Louis on Tuesday and burial is tentatively scheduled for Thursday at Jefferson Barracks.

    Cards of condolences may be sent to
    Chris Graves
    100 Frankie Lane
    Madison, AL 35757

    The family asked that donations be made to any American Cancer Society in lieu of flowers.

    Please keep Chris' and Darrell's family in your thoughts and prayers

    Howard,

    The photo is an old attachment from here at the Corvette Action Center, so I am not sure why it does not reproduce for you..

    Howard, the problem was something I did, hopefully I have it corrected now. Thanks for bringing this to my attention..
