Mrs. Daniels,
I met you at the facility where your husband was staying. My uncle (you call him "Munchy") and my aunt stay there. I am so very sorry for your loss and your family's loss. He surely was a fantastic man because you are a fantastic lady. We should all strive to be like you. Each time I was there visiting my aunt and uncle you were already there tending to your husband. You were also always busy making sure every resident had coffee, hot chocolate, water, tea, whatever they wanted to drink---you were on it. EVERY SINGLE TIME I was there, you were already there, taking care of business. You'd even go back to get a certain resident a straw if she needed it (and she always does). I will miss seeing you and your husband there. I know you will be missed by everyone out there. Munchy and me included. God Bless You.

May God comfort this Family as they find peace knowing that their Loved One is in Gods Heavenly Home. Slim was a Great man to have known, worked with and be mentor by. He was very honest and dedicated to the service of his country and was one who always took care of his people. He will always be remembered as one who paved the way for many who followed him in military service. To have be given a nickname from slim was to know he liked you, what an honor for me that was. God Bless this Family and Rest In Peace SMSgt Charles “Slim”Daniels.

Linda, Scott(Charlie) and Laura,
I know no words can easy the pain of your loss right now, but you are in our thoughts and prayers.
There is a photo of Wayne holding Hunter on one of your cows taken 12 years ago that is posted on my refrigerator. I often look at it and think of the Daniels’ family and how wonderful you all are.
With Love Johnny and Sherri Wellman
