This site was created in memory of my mom Dana "Danni" Schaul. She was born on November 22, 1945. and passed away on November 15, 1998. We will remember her forever.  She was a moral compass and always inspiring to her friends and family and really anyone who crossed her path.  Small in frame, she had a huge heart and a larger than life personality and presence. My mom was adored by friends and family and her community. She was the 'life of the party'. Her loss was devastating to the people who knew her. - Jordan

The following tribute was created and shared on Mother's Day (May 11, 2014) by Jordan, her oldest son.

המס הבא נוצר וחילק ביום האם ( מאי 11, 2014 ) על ידי הילד הכי ישן שלה ירדן כארלטוןסצ'אאל

"There are a lot of things I learned from my mom that didn't resonate with me until I reflected on her life several years after she past away from cancer at 53. Often, the galvanizing force among her many friends and family, she was the perpetual event planner. 

My mom saw the cup half-full. She was a dreamer and a star gazer. She was mindful and thoughtful and high energy---She was courageous strong and and disciplined. My mom lived more in one day than many live in a life time. Indeed, she cherished every waking moment. She was a consummate fashionista, obsessive about health an fitness as a professional dirtitian. And she had the determination of a Navy Seal. 

She was blessed to wake up, gratefullnfor everything, generous to her friends and particularly patriotic. She never took our liberties or freedom for granted. It wasn't until I visited some of the poorest places on Earth that I realized this gift, but my mom had such great intuition about so many things that few people contemplate. Upon her request we played patriotic songs (including America the Beautiful) at her memorial service."

I remember Danni growing up in Youngstown. Jordan describes her beautifully. She was a light of kindness and understanding. How wonderful for Jordan to have created this place for friends to express their feelings about his wonderful Mom.

Sitting today at your mothers resting place , to be somehow both with her and to honor and of course, always remember her, turned my heart into an open flood of tears. Later I will tell you more.

America, The Beautiful Lyrics by Katharine Lee Bates - 1913 O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea! O beautiful for pilgrim feet, Whose stern impassion'd stress A thoroughfare for freedom beat Across the wilderness! America! America! God mend thine ev'ry flaw, Confirm thy soul in self-control, Thy liberty in law! O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife, Who more than self their country loved, And mercy more than life! America! America! May God thy gold refine Till all success be nobleness, And ev'ry gain divine! O Beautiful for patriot dream That sees beyond the years Thine alabaster cities gleam, Undimmed by human tears! America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea! If you have suggestions or comments for us, we'd appreciate your dropping us a note by clicking here.

My mom was the center of our lives. She was a spirited, vivacious and energetic woman. She was as beautiful as she was classy and elegant and graceful. She was the life of the party and she was my mom.
