When I think of Danny and Leta, I always remember the time they helped us put up an above ground swimming pool about 20 years ago. We were very thankful for their willingness to help us. We couldn't do it by ourselves. I also have sweet memories of working with Danny at the Water Treatment Plant, he even helped me get my job their. Danny will be missed but always remembered in our hearts. Love you Leta, Amber, and Brennon. Praying for you all.
