Jon, I'm so sorry for the loss of your father. He was a good man and will be missed. I just noticed that he had passed today and when I saw his name I was telling myself, "It can't be." Take care and be there for your mom and brothers Jon and again, my condolences on your and your families lives.

To Virginia, Jonathan and Daniel, Danny was and will always be a special part of my life. We looked at each other as brothers and sister. He was always there for me with a lending and teaching hand at work and my personal life. He was such a giving and loving person and he loved his family so much. I so glad that God gave us Danny and know He called him home, because He needed him in a special way. Danny will always be in our hearts, something that no one can take away. My condelsence and loves goes out to you.

Skip,
I was so sorry to hear of Danny's passing. I had hoped to see you and Danny again when Jonathan moved across the highway from me. He was a very good friend to all who knew him. You and all the boys will be in my thoughts and prayers during this time.
