Tanya and Ziegler family;
Sorry for the loss of Danny. Many years ago when Danny lived in Drake he used to spend a lot of time out on our farm. He would stay for days at a time. We had so damn much fun and got in trouble also. Nothing to serious though. After they moved to Harvey we still got together often. But as we got older and went our own way we kinda lost touch with each other. Such is life.
Hope you all recover from such a bad thing and life will get better for everyone. I'm really glad I called and we had a chance to reminisce about the good old days.
