March 20, 2012—Darrin R. Koep Day

Today we come together to focus our attention on Darrin R. Koep who passed on March 20, 2007.


Dear Prayer Giver,

Wherever you are, take a moment to sit down and bring all of your awareness into this sacred present moment. Allow your thoughts and cares of the day slip away from you now as you enter the present moment completely. Slowly now, take in a deep breath and slowly let the breath out; breathing in deeply and exhaling fully.  And again, inhale slowly and exhale thoroughly.


As you read these words, take the time to really feel and think about what you are saying, for this is indeed a sacred moment:

Dear Darrin, We The Prayer Team, are with you now, in thought and spirit. We send you energy and love from our souls to yours and we pray that you will all feel it and know how very loved you are.


Meditation/Visualization: —continue to sit comfortably and allow yourself to be here in the present moment, letting go of your cares and worries of the day.


Now, bring all of your attention to the tip of your nose and imagine that you are the gatekeeper at the gates of a big city and that it is your very important job to watch the coming and the going of your breath.  Simply focus all your concentration at the tip of your nose and observe your breath as it enters and leaves you.


As you breathe-in, focus on the feeling of the breath as it enters your nostrils

As you breathe-out, focus on the feeling of the breath as it leaves your nostrils

Breathing-in feel the breath coming into you

Breathing-out feel the breath as it leaves you.


Continue to focus on your breathing

If your mind wanders away going off into thought,(which is common in meditation) gently bring your focus back to the tip of your nose and resume your position as gatekeeper, watching the coming and going of your breath.


As you breathe-in feel the cool air as it enters your nostrils

As you breathe-out feel the warm air as it leaves your nostrils

Breathing-in cool, breathing-out warm

Breathing-in cool, breathing-out warm

In cool, out warm…in cool, out warm.


Now as you breathe-in, envision Darrin

standing in the light before you

As you breathe-out, envision Darrin looking vibrant and well



As you inhale, envision drawing energy into you

As you exhale envision directing that energy to Darrin

As you inhale continue to visualize energy entering into you

As you exhale see this energy flowing outward from you and surrounding Darrin

Bathing him in light and loving energy

See him surrounded by energy

See him smiling

See him laughing

See that Darrin is happy and free


As you breathe-in feel that you are strengthened by this energy

As you breathe-out direct this feeling of strength to Darrin’s family

As you breathe-in draw peace into yourself

As you exhale send that feeling of peace to Darrin’s family

Dear Darrin, we all see you smiling and glowing in the light. May you know that LOVE, the one universal sustaining force, is being sent to you now and always will be. May you feel it and know that love is without end. You will always be loved and you will always be remembered.  Love to you dear one. Peace be with you Darrin. We love you, The Prayer Team.

    Dear Darrin,
    I am sending you a prayer full of love, and pray that you are soaring freely and peacefully on the other side, and in the loving care of our Lord. Darrin, you are so very much loved and missed, and may the love being sent to you fill your heart with peace and light.
    To Darrin’s family, I am sending you a prayer full of love, and pray that you may find some measure of peace and comfort on this very difficult day. There are two dates we never forget: the day our child was born, and the day our child passed. I know how much you ache to hold and hug Darrin just one more time, and even though his Earthly body has been left behind, his soul and spirit are alive and well. As you send your love to Darrin, may that love come back to you and may you feel his presence. Please know that Darrin is with you today, tomorrow, and forever…
    With Love & Prayers,
    John David’s Mom

    To Darrin’s family and friends,

    Sending hugs and prayers to you today, Darrin’s angel day, hoping that the day is gentle for you, my friends. I know how difficult these days can be to get through. Having a son or daughter in heaven changes everything. My heart to yours,

    Mom to ^i^Joey (10-31-81–6-20-08)
    Lorin, Mike, & Greg
    Another day without you, another tear silently falls
    I have grown accustomed to an aching heart and false smile
    But I will never grow accustomed to life without
    My precious son Joey

  8. To Darrin’s beloved friends and family….may God wrap His loving arms around you on this most painful anniversary and bring you peace. One day we will all be reunited with our beloved children and that will be a very glorious day indeed.
    Shirley – mom of Dimitri 7/13/87 to 8/9/10

    To dear Darrin, may you be surrounded by light and joy and may your family be comforted by always feeling you near to them.
    May prayers are being sent for you all today. God bless
    Love from – Shane’s mum

  12. Heavenly Father,
    I humbly come to you and pray that you will wrap the family, friends and community of Darrin in a blanket of comfort as they reflect on the precious life you created and gave eternal life. As a mother who has lost a son, I understand their loss and I pray they will find peace knowing that this child of God is sitting at the feet of Jesus listening intently as he has all of his questions answered. I pray that the heavenly trumpets are playing a special song for him and the streets paved with gold lead him on beautiful, heavenly journeys. I pray the family will turn to you in their grief and allow you to carry them through these difficult days where they miss their precious child. I pray all these things in your heavenly name. Amen.
