Danny, you were so loved. I’ll never pass a Braum’s Ice Cream without it putting a smile on my face. We both love their Chocolate. Say hello to Kenneth and Nita along with my parents for us. If you hang around those four very long you know they’ll make a fisherman out of you.
We love and miss you Danny.

I really didn't know him. My Mom and Dad did.
He will be missed.

I have been friends with Barbara since the third grade. I met Danny when they started dating and was maid of honor at their wedding. Those two were made for each other and everyone knew it. Barbara and Danny were on top of the world and there they remained. Danny loved her so much and Barbara felt the same. When their children came along the more fulfilled they were. They have four beautiful children and he will be watching over them and Barbara from heaven above. Much love to the family.
Barbara my sister from another mother I love you and will think and pray for all you everyday.
