Words cannot express our sadness at your passing, yet we are rejoicing in that you are in God's kingdom where you have earned your spot, and you are no longer suffering. You have fought a brave and strong fight. We will always have fond memories of our times together. We will laugh as we remember your antics and jokes, and we will cry that you are gone. God bless you, Danny, or as Cheryl affectionately called you Gooberhead, and one day we shall meet again.

My heart and prayer goes out to the family for your lost.

I was glad to reconnect to Dan a few years ago at one of our class reunion. Kept in touch from time to time either by email, or Facebook, as well from time to time seeing him in the Valley he grew up in.

Dan, if you hear me, I like to say thank you.
