My sincerest sympathy goes out to the friends and family of Danny. It is such a difficult thing to deal with the loss of such a young father who was so loved by many . As time goes by, you will begin to realize that as you think of his smiles, his love of his family, his laughter, the pain will have diminished a bit and you'll find yourself smiling again.
