    Mrs. Danny and my Nana were very good friends. I’ve known her since I was a child. She had a big heart and always seemed to be large and in charge. She will be greatly missed.

    Miss Danny will be greatly missed. My mom, JoAnn Hedington, did her hair for years and considered her a great friend. I loved her dearly. I'm so sorry for the loss of such a great woman! Prayers for everyone left behind.
