Donna, I am so sorry for you and your family. I ran into Danny a couple of times at the nursing home while his mother was there. We talked and reminisced about the times we all spent together. Gary thought so much of Danny and how honest and down to earth he was. It is so ironic that I talked with Danny either Monday or Tuesday before he passed away on Wednesday. He called me about a business matter. Donna, it's so difficult but somehow God gets us through this. I still miss Gary so much but I know he would want me to carry on. Just know that you and your family are in my prayers.

So sorry for your loss Danny was truly a wonderful man. My two oldest girls would love to go hang out and cut up with him and Jerry while waiting for their Dad to get off work. The girls favorite thing was to have snacks and drinks Delilah eat so many Cheetos they nicknamed her the Cheeto Bandito and she loved it! He will be dearly missed.

Danny was a wonderful person. He was a patient of mine (cardiac rehab at Baptist). We all loved him dearly. He will not be forgotten❤. With sympathies, Lora RN

I first met this man earlier this month. He moved a mobile home for me. I have to say he was one great person to do business with. He worked with me everyway that he could. He apologized to me so many times because moving my mobile home was delayed due to his fellow business partner's wife passing away. We had just spent the afternoon running around getting everything ready. Permits and all the legalities. We talked as if we had known each other all our lives. He was so down to earth with me. I don't believe I've met anyone as pleasant to do business with. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
