Our prayers are sent for the family. I will miss sharing emails with Danny. He is with the Father, free of pain and illness now, and rejoicing in many ways with family who have passed before him. May God give you all a peace and comfort through these next days that only He can provide. Remember Danny with joy and happiness. That is the blessing God has given those left behind. Hugs, Judy

My prayers are with the family in their time of grief; especially Judy, his wife. Danny was a generous person. He always was willing to share his recipes and made some wonderful meals when visited Danny and Judy in Florida. He had a wonderful sense of humor. He will be missed so much. I will especially miss the many card games we played. He is in the Lord's hands now and no longer in pain. Thanks be to God.
Sincerely, Your sister-in-law, Janet
