Danny you were always a good uncle but most of all you were like a close friend to me and I will miss you more than you know love always your nephew boo
I remember mom saying when I was born she took me down to surprise grandma. But when she got there and walk in with me in her arms. There was grandma sitting there with Danny in hers. I was born August 1 you were born August 12. I'll always love you Danny
Danny once let me help as he baked me a special cake "just for me" so we made the cake then I got to sit on his knee while we watched thru the oven door as it baked. Them we got our oven mitt and got the cake out of the oven. Wheni got to eat it it was the best cake I had ever tasted. I've remembered that cake and that special time all my life. Couple years ago I ask uncle Danny how to make that cake. Turns out it was a TWINKIE. Who knew. But it was the best damn twinkle I've ever had. LoL. Love you. Always and forever. Andi
We might have talked on the phone in the past two years more than the rest of my life with all years total. I learned that you liked to read Louis L'Amour books – westerns. I learned that you changed diapers while watching a friend's baby. If you knew Danny, I am sure it is hard for you to imagine, also. I wish we had video of it and could watch it with him at our next family reunion which he asked about in our last talk. He was looking forward to it. COVID19 has made so many things more difficult including this. Siblings missing the hugs and connection that make us family. Just before Thanksgiving, he sounded happy and that is how I will remember him – smiling and laughing and happy. I feel a bit broken hearted that we cannot have the reunion he wanted to attend this time, but I know he will be there with us along with his sister and his brothers that can never physically join us but will be carried within our hearts and heard in our shared stories. Perhaps, Danny is having the most awesome reunion even now. I cannot imagine heaven but if it is a place with our loved ones, hug them all for us up there, Danny, and I know they are hugging you, too.
Danny my most notable memories of you were when I would come stay with you all in the summertime. Brenda and I were always trying to get away from you and Bobby, or maybe a few of your friends. You were the pests that we couldn’t quite get away from. You guys would also drive us crazy by throwing things at us or just general bad boy stuff. But even as mad as we’d get at you, you always laughed and laughed! I’ve missed that over the years as we’ve all gotten older. I can’t believe I’m sitting here thinking I wish you would throw something at me and laugh that laugh again. I’ll miss you and always keep you in my heart. Love you, Uncle. Roxy
I close my eyes and I can still see you when you were a little boy. A very sweet boy with beautiful blue eyes and freckles.
My most vivid memory is how you reacted when any of us other siblings begged you for some of your candy. You always got mad and threw it at us saying, "have it all, have it all!"
I love you little brother and I hope to see you on the other side. You will surely be telling lots of jokes and making everyone laugh.
Danny was kind to family, and not hateful to others. His mistakes were those of circumstance, and not of inborn character. He will be missed by many. May he go peacefully into the great unknown.
