I seem to have innumerable connections to Darren.
I used to work with his Mom, Julie Jackson, when I worked with the Legislative Assembly.
My brother Steve used to work with Darren's fiance Sheila Taylor at the CBC in Regina; Sheila later moved to Prince Edward Island and filled the position vacated by my friend Ann Thurlow.
Darren's aunt lives just over our back fence on Richmond St. and his niece Elise works for Catherine every Sunday afternoon.
His uncle is Urban Carmichael is musician and entertainer Urban Carmichael.
Our first Christmas on the Island was spent in Catherine Hennessey's house having dinner with David Weale and Darren.
