We've known each other our entire lives. I have always been in awe of you. You overcame so many obstacles in your life to become the most loving, optimistic, talented, successful person. You loved life, made the most of it, and made it better for all of us. I can't begin to express how heart broken I am that you were taken from us too soon. But I know you are loving after-life and making the most of that too. Until we meet again dear cousin, I will miss you and you will be in my heart forever.

Danny was deffinately one of the most stubborn people I have ever met. He was also one of the funniest. No matter the situation he would make everybody in the room laugh. He also had a heart of gold (especially with children). You will be greatly missed!! I am so glad that our last words to one another were "I love ya"
