Your bubbling personality and great sense of humor filled the air, if you were within hearing distance! You made every minute of life count. Music was where your soul was "at home". You drank it in like a fine wine! You were so intelligent and capable of so many avenues, I'm sure it was hard for you to know which to devour first. We were certianly blessed by your ability to play the drums! The rythmn you put down sure did bring us up! You were a true friend and a loving son and brother. We were so proud of all of your accomplishments, but mostly we were proud of you, just for being you. We're thankful that you were with us for 33 years. Thank you for the music, laughs and the love. YOU were the music in my life.
Love always, Mom

 Personal Notes

I didn't get to spend alot of time around Danny, so I really didn't get to know him as well as I would have liked to. I do remember his sense of humor, his ability to always make me laugh! I'm sure we would have had alot of fun together, just as we did when we were kids, in what now seems like too brief a moment. Goodbye Danny and thank you for blessing us all with the joy of having known you!

You tried to tell me you were leaving............I didn't understand.
You said it would be fast, like stepping over a line. I'm glad it was fast and that you didn't suffer.
You came to visit me after your passing. I thank you for that. I feel you are very active today. But, I wish I knew where and how.
I love you, always

I miss you, Daniel. The years don't really make it any easier. Today is 8 years to the date that I took that first photo of you that your mom put up on this site.
Our daughter asks about you all the time and tells me she misses you--it's all I can do not to cry.
So you got me today--I was sitting in Arby's with two friends from work and suddenly, Amazed came on. I burst into tears! It was almost as if you were there. I can't believe it. 8 years later and still noone compares to you...

This is the poem I read the day I turned your ashes loose, in the ocean.

Lord grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss. Help me remember the details of his life with the love that he showed me. And grant me the courage to honor him by sharing those memories with others. Let him remember me as well and let him know that I will always love him. And when it's my time to pass over into your paradise, please allow him to be among those who will bring me on home.
