Danny will always be a special memory to me. He was very good friends with my brother Brad, who passed away at age 59 of cancer.
I will forever remember Danny as being so kind to everyone! My heart goes out to his wife, children, grandchildren and siblings. May each one of you cherish the beautiful memories of Danny.
I live in Texas now and just found out today of his passing. To hear he passed in his own home was a blessing instead of a cold hospital. May God bless you all!
