    I have been at a loss for words. I can't believe we will never see you again, never see your smile again or never hear your laugh again. But now is not a time for regrets but a time for reflection; a time to take stock of our relationships; a time to make changes. We need to work on being a more loving and unified family. I would like to think that my mother was wating for you at the Pearly Gates with arms open wide saying, "Welcome home Brother!" May you rest in peace Tio Danny. You will always be loved.

    I will miss my tio Danny greatly! I still can't believe we won't ever see him again on this earth. I will miss everything about him and wish everyone would have had the chance to know how wonderful he was. Danny was a charmer. He had an infectious laugh, a great sense of humor, a genuine love of children, a passion for food, a zest for adventure, but what set him apart was his selflessness.
    I will never forget when I was in Army basic training at Ft, Jackson, SC, he drove through on his way back to Ft. Benning, GA. He managed to impress the drill sargents with his accomplishments adorned on his uniform, and they allowed him to visit with me. While the rest of my platoon scrubbed and cleaned the kitchen and dining area, I was at a table visiting with Danny. As my "punishment" for being allowed that privilege, I had to carry the floor buffer back to our barracks up a few flights of stairs, but it was totally worth it. I would gladly do it again and again today for one more chance to visit with tio Danny. RIP Danny. I love you!
