So many memories with Danny and his family growing up.
We moved into Sherwood Forest in the early sixties across the street from the Gregory's and ended up being lifelong friends.
we took vacations together and had camps on the tickfaw river next door to each other.
Danny was a big part of my childhood memories.

RIP Brother.

Love Dave Ellis
