Remembering one of the times me, Tony Bateman, Danny & Rebecca went fishing & Danny caught a Garr fish & surprised me & Rebecca by throwing that ugly, creepy thing right between us into back of the truck. Scared the crap out of us, so much that stepped off into a cow hoof hole in the mud & ended up breaking the strap on my favorite flip flops. Danny thought it was funny as hell, of course, us, not so much, lol. Now, wouldn't trade that memory for anything. R.I.P. Danny Gilliam, we're gonna miss you! Luv y'all Rebecca & Daniel, my heart breaks for you guys & will be praying for God to give y'all the strength to get through this sad time, 💜💚💔😔
