|Let the memory of Daniel be with us forever|
"One year... one year. One year, 12 months, 365 days, 8,760 hours, 525,600 minutes, and 31,536,000 seconds without your goofy snaps, funny text messages, and random FaceTime calls at 3 in the morning.. One year of no holidays celebrated with you here, one year of no new memories made, one entire year of more disappointments, heartbreaks and failures, one entire year of experience, growth, and achievement, one year of life that I couldn't share with you. One year of not having your crooked grin, smirky laugh and off beat dancing. One year of not being able to boss you around or have you tell me when I'm wrong (even though I was right). One year of confusion, loneliness, and unanswered questions. One year of watching your nephews accomplish new things and reach new milestones without you here to see it. All of the new that has came with the newness of you being gone has been miserable. The pain I felt on November 18th at 9:29 am when I received that call from the San Diego Coroner is the same pain I still feel today. I can only thank God for helping me live an entire year without the person I thought I couldn't live a second without. I love you forever and always my sweet precious Dan Lee...."
"A year ago Daniel Erkhart died.
I never met him. I don't even live on the same continent!
I read about his death on some website which showed a picture of a cute guy with big eyes and a sweet smile. Immediately I got curious and wanted to know more about him. It seems that Daniel loved everyone and was equally loved by everyone. Lots of people were very sad about his death and wrote tearful messages.
As I said, I never knew him. Only from pictures and some videos. I always knew that there was something special about him. You can see it in his eyes, that he was a very sweet soul. His love for other people, his warm heart, his kind words touched me deeply.
Even after his death he continues to affect people.
This is the most fitting legacy for such a sweet person.
I'll light a candle in church today.
Tom, Vienna, Austria"
