Danny, I am so sorry to find of your recent passing. We were friends from the Irish Channel who were never really that far from our childhood roots, but somehow failed to continue our friendship over the years. I did hear from you some years back and was happy to know that you had your hobby, short wave radio, and had used it for years to stay current and to help many people find their way during difficult times. I was also glad to hear that you had married Debbie Gallagher a wonderful girl also from our childhood rearing area. It is so nice to see you with your wonderful family and it appears many of your friends who you were able to stay in contact with. I send my deepest sympathies to your spouse, Deborah and your entire family. I wish the world were more today like it was when we grew up. I grew up thinking I was a poor kid, but now I realize how truly fortunate we were to have been born and raised in the 50's,60's , and 70's. I would move back to the channel, Annunciation St. or Phillip St. today if it were anything like it usedmto be. May you be eternally in Gods hands and service.
Your friend always.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time I have experienced the sting of an unexpected death. I do know that there are absolutely no words to relieve or ease the pain of that loss. Since my father died, I viewed mr danny as the "father" in my life, so in a way I feel as if I have lost a father....again.

I want to thank mr Danny for showing his son how to be an amazing husband and father through his example. I pray my boys grow up to be just like him- loving, appreciative, humble, Christian, and hard-working. Mr Danny had such a pure heart which is rare in this world.

I mourn for all the experiences that he will never be a part of, and 'why' will always linger in my heart. For now, I will pray for acceptance and peace while knowing that the world will never be as bright as when Mr Danny lit it up.
