I am sorry to hear of your loss. Glad to have been able to have known Danny. Had a very nice conversation with him recently as we ran into each other at Sam's. I will hold onto that memory. God Bless and watch over you during these difficult times of life without him. May your sweet memories sustain you in the days ahead. Bill Bihler
