“There are no words for this. All the language that I know is inadequate for what I want to express. But for Darren, I will try. I can’t describe him with cliches and platitudes. I need to do better than that; he deserves better than that.
“My husband was an incredibly intricate blend of toughness and gentility. He was loyal…fiercely so. And he was ethical; the right thing to do is what guided his internal compass. I admired this quality, perhaps, the most. For that was what made Darren good. And he was good. So, if people want to know what kind of man he was…This is it. He was who you wanted for a friend, a colleague, and a neighbor.
“However, it was I who was blessed so richly that I had the privilege of calling him my husband and my best friend.
Two of Deputy Goforth’s nieces spoke out on Twitter.
