Dearest Pat and Jean,
Sarah and Jimmie Watson here, just wanted to let you know, it sadden us to read about Danny. It also saddens us to know we cannot gather as a family to let you know we are sorry for the loss of your brother. Jimmie and I both know what its like to loss a sibling. I know your sad, but at the same time we can also rejoice knowing he’s in the arms of our Lord and Savior. We can only imagine the joy he has seeing your Mom and Dad again, Praise be to God. So when you think about Danny, remember the fun times you had together, this is what he would want you to do. I also believe he would greatly appreciate someone taking care of his furry little friend, Rufus. Again sorry for your loss and hopefully when you do have a memorial service we can gather as a family. Love to all, Sarah and Jimmie.

Some of my earliest memories are of Emily and Brent taking me 'down to Tiny's' so they could hang out with all Brent's buddies. Dawn Burns and his niece, Dawn, were a little younger than me and I would play with them on a blanket in Peg's den and get an 'education.' Lol. Too many good times to share. Looking forward to seeing him again some day.

I have so many wonderful memories of Danny. We would chat on the phone and he would make me laugh. He always treated me like family and I will miss him.
