Danny,

You were my friend from the first time we met. I will miss our Sunday morning coffee talks, and Maximum Assault dinner times. You were always the real deal my brother. I am sad that Emily will not get to spend more time getting to know her uncle Danny.

I will never forget you pal,

Danny you will be so missed.. How cool is it that you got to share Jesus Birthday with him? I just know you are in heaven playing with all the kids walking and running with them. I will miss our after church lunches!! One of the best memories I have is when you ordered old clothes and could barely cut it with a knife let alone eat it. It had been a long time since I had laughed that hard. I will laugh about it from now on. I will miss seeing you in church with that grin of yours.

Love
