    Danny, I love you so much and miss you so much already. Your crazy stories you would tell me and the kids about your childhood made us all laugh. You were so kindhearted, never met a stranger and always willing to help anyone that was less fortunate than you. I looked forward to your phone calls to hear about your day. You were always thanking Elgin and I for anything we had helped you with. Very appreciative and never asking for anything. When you left this world so unexpectedly I know one thing for sure, you and I had a special love for each other. Yes I’m grieving your loss but knowing we had that special bond, makes my heart happy.
