    Danny was one of my dearest and best friend for many years. We had our ups and downs and even stopped talking for a couple years. I have always kept him and Sean in my prayers. Trying to wrap my head around him being gone is not easy. Always had a special love for Danny…I kept your reserved sign, now it’s your turn to save a place for me. Fly high my dear friend, I miss you more than words
