Danny and I worked together for many decades. I have never heard a bad word against him. He always seemed to have a smile on his face and seemed to be a nice kind man. He was at my wedding in 1973. If I ever asked Danny how he was doing, he would say: "If it was any better, I couldn't stand it," I will miss our many talks about the Red Wings. He was a good friend to many and I offer my condolences to his family.
