What an awesome gift to this world. I was extremely grateful to know Danny at Cathedral as we were in the great class of '93. Danny was truly one of a kind- athletically inclined on the basketball court and baseball field, humorous- what a jokester, kind hearted- reaching out to all and the unforgettable life of the party- dancing machine. I am grateful for his personality and character. Most importantly I am so glad that we became even closer during our retreat group. I will never forget just a wonderful brother and friend. Danny will forever be in our hearts and memories. One love fam.

To the entire Weed family, you have a host of people across this world praying for you all forever and always. #Psalm46

One Love,
(Rev. Dr.) Willie A. Gholston II, c/o '93 (Senior VP)

Danny was a great guy. You knew right away that he had the good heart with a big smile and a friendly word. Made you feel good to know him.

My childhood would not be complete without your family! You and Erin were such a great part of growing up! Having sister friends is the best! My entire family loved Danny! When you all moved, I am pretty sure we wanted to follow! Danny had a gift for making people smile and laugh. The world needs this more now than ever! I know he will live on in all of you! I am positive his nieces and nephews have it too! I look forward to watching the best of Danny shine through all of you! Love you Collins, Weed family so much!!!

To Jack, Mary, and the girls. It is with great sadness and sorrow that I write this.

As I think of Danny I have very fond memories of us together in 5th-8th grade. And later in our early 20’s. He was so charismatic, funny, and quick witted.

To all of you I hope you find peace comfort in these extremely difficult days. I hope you know and understand the positive impact that Danny had on so many. May God bless you all!

Danny, I toast you tonight with a cold one.
Cheers my Friend! Rest In Peace

Your friend
