I am deeply saddened by the news of Danica's passing. My heartfelt condolences to your family. I remember Danica from when I worked at Shelton View. She was the sweetest, kindest little girl, and was a delight to be around. And what a beautiful smile. I remember her at school as showing empathy and compassion to friends when they were sad or unhappy. I just adored her. My prayers and blessings are with you. Love, Judy
