Daniel was an amazing man. Loved deeply and wholly. Loved his wife and kids more than anything and always hoped they had the best in life. He was a teacher, mentor and friend to all who needed it. He will be missed so very much in our lives and I hope that we can find peace that he's in a much better place.
