My condolences to your family. He was truly a friend to all who knew him. I was part of the class of 75 at Washington Senior High and remember him well. I will miss his facebook posts. You could tell he loved his hometown. Patricia Hollis Roberts.
Fran and Bob, we are so sad to hear of Danny’s passing. As we spoke, not to many days ago, that you have had a hard year. You are both in our prayers. Know that Danny has found peace in the arms of our Lord and now he can visit with all the loved ones that has gone on before. God Bless you both and all the family.
Our deepest sympathy and prayers to you and your family for your loss..
