I am sorry to hear of my cousin Daniel's passing. He was a good person and often stopped by to check on my mother his aunt to make sure she was okay and visit with her that meant alot to my family. I also remember play dates with him during our childhood his mom( my aunt ) would make us lunches and we often asked for French fries with lots of ketchup. My prayers are with the family.

I had the honors of growing up with Daniel in our younger years. we would go visit the family quite often and we all played, Daniel his brother David And myself. We would find whatever to play with. We at one point got a big cardboard box big enough to hold all three of us and we would crawl inside of it and make it roll and make believe it was a tank. As time passed they moved to Amarillo but we still visited quite often. As time went by we all got married. I remember i was in amarillo at the hospital with a family member and i got a hold of Daniel and David and they went and picked me up. It had been a while since we had seen each other but we went back to the house where we just all had grins from ear to ear. Daniel was a kind person to know. If you knew him you know what i mean. Daniel we will miss you.
REST IN PEACE
