My heartfelt sympathy to Dayna's family and friends as we mourn the loss of a beautiful person. I have so many memories of our times together but here are a few. She was a beautiful angel of mercy when my brother had cancer treatments and was losing his hair. She made a house call to shave his head and gave him some dignity. I remember many walks through her neighborhood when she was in her fitness phase, and we'd just chat it up about all subjects. I remember the limo days when she gladly shared it for our special occasions and her cool chauffeurs outfit. I looked up to her like a big sister, which she was to me.

Gone too soon but never forgotten. I will love you always, Dayna!
