I am sorry to hear of Danny's passing! I knew him when we were children and lived in the same neighborhood! I ran into him at a softball tournament here in Atlanta, and he looked the same as i remembered him! My condolences to his family and lifting up prayers!

I attended highschool and Danny was a close friend. We had many great adventures together. I left the area years ago and am truly sorry we lost touch. He was a great friend and I will miss him. Prayers for the family.
