RIP Danny. You are already missed, and loved. Thank you for being such a special friend, and family member in my life. Always welcoming me into your home. No matter how much time had went by, you always made me feel like it was just “yesterday” like I had seen you. Didn’t skip a beat. Thank you and love you always.
My heart goes out to all who knew Danny; he was so easy to love. He was an outgoing fun-loving man who loved Jesus and family. He had much compassion and tried to meet needs for others. He prayed for me and my husband while making a rocking chair for us after our house fire. Each time I would shake his hand at church during that time, I would weep but didn’t know why. Later I realized it was due to the overwhelming love I felt due to his special prayers, love, and compassion in his heart, for us. We think of him as we use it. He was one of a kind in the best sense! Mike and I loved him a lot and are so thankful to have known him. I pray for comfort and peace for his family and loved ones. His faith has become reality! He can see Jesus face to face now!
You will be missed. I love you Daddy Danny. Hug my big brother for me.
Rest in Peace.
