So sadden by the loss of Danny! Life will be changed for us all but the great memories we have of you will carry us through until we meet again. You were an awesome nephew to me. You always knew how to make me laugh and I've always thought of you as more then a nephew. I'm glad you got to grow up with my three girls because you were like the brother they never had. You will always be in our hearts. Love you Dan

Dearest Debbie and family , I knew about Dan the day when he passed and have been trying to come to you with something wise to heal your pain ,but there is nothing I can say ,but just this I can not imagine how you feel ,our children are the same ages and they went to school together and you and I Debbie we have known each other for over 40 years , but yet this is a time that I can not find any words ,.I don't think there any. No mom should have to bury a child no matter age ,one thing that was told me when my nephew was killed at age 18 was he is not gone he is just away ,I find comfort in those words I hope you also do in time . I'm only a few miles away anything I can do or the guys can do to help out at the farm just let us know . Love ya Lady and I say that with tears from one mom to the other
