My greatest memories of Uncle Daniel as a kid was knowing I’d be eating rice meals whenever he and Aunty Babes had to babysit me and my siblings. I could always count on him to NOT make us cereal and milk or sandwich. We always ate good at his house. As an adult my fondest memories are of him leading holy communion and praying for us with his whole heart. The way he’d always refuse to use a mic and cry whenever he talked about the Lord showed that he loved God so much and it always blessed me. Another great one gone, but never ever forgotten. I love you forever my Uncle.
