Dearest Dave and Theresa: We were enriched by knowing Danny, and carry him in our hearts. The grief we feel is only outweighed by the knowledge of his love, sincerity and wholehearted respect of all people. His recent religious experiences typify his mind and soul in his search for God. It has been an honor to know and love him. Holden, April and Dan.
