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.
