 A Father’s love is waiting there, This too is birth, not death."

Hello Dana. These kids miss you sooo much. We are going to see you again right now. Doing it celebration of your life. Telling stories and stuff. Daniel has become a fine young man. He writes music and is very disciplined. Desiree is exactly like you in many ways. It's weird because she does things now that you would do n she didn't really see you doing them. Definitely you're baby girl. Very argumentive. I expect her to become a lawyer or something. Buubs is still coming into his own. He's the quarterback on Austin meehans football team. He is very into it. Trains hard and is devoted. They all still cry for you once in a while. Only the good die young. We all believe your watching over them. You would be so proud of them!!! And I'm not just saying these things. You really would be. You will always be a great mother to them. And they are comply aware of your impact on the lives. Thank you.

Happy birthday Dana. I miss you so much still. I don't think it will ever get easier. When I look at the kid's all I see is your sweet little face when I first met you and you walked up to me and said are you gonna marry my cousin. Lol you were so cute. From that day on we were so close. You were like a little sister to me and I hate that you are gone. I know I will see you again someday but it just seems so far away. I love you always.

Oh Dana! We miss you so much. The one word that comes to mind when I think of you is sassy. You were so sassy and it was so awesome. From the time you were little, the way you would say things- complete sass. I miss it so much. The way you and Jenn would go back and forth with each other just like sisters do. It was beautiful. You and Erin are watching over us I’m sure. I miss you sweetie.

A Woman without her sister is like a bird without wings... I miss you Dana and I'm devastated that Jonathan will never know you. He was only 6 months old when you passed away. Kenny and Nathan have so many memories of you and I thank God for their memories. We were just thinking of you and sharing fond memories and I'm so thankful for these beautiful memories my boys have and share with me. We love and miss you so much!

The years fly by and one thing never changes.... I miss you every moment of everyday. Here I am five years after you passed and life still does not feel real. I can't believe you are gone, I still feel like I just got off the phone with you. Our last conversation plays over and over in my head. I miss you so much! I love you Dana and think about you every single day. You are missed and loved and forever in my heart!

Happy Birthday up in Heaven from your family here below. We love you, and we miss you, and want to let you know.   Your birthdays aren’t forgotten. and your memory yet lives on. We celebrate your life with us even though you’ve gone.   Were God to grant us just one wish, then make that wish come true, you’d be here right beside us and we’d spend this day with you.   And while here for your birthday you would be so hugged and kissed that you would know before you go how much you’re loved and missed.

As mothers day approaches you are on my mind non-stop. You were the most loving and devoted Mom and your children were your whole world. You took so much joy and pride in cooking for your kids and doing crafts with your kids. You did so many fun things with them. They each had a "special night" and I loved that idea and admired you for doing that. I know you are their guardian angel and always by their side. You were also the best Aunt to your nephews and they miss you and all the fun things you guys used to do together. Kenny still talks about your homemade buffalo wings. The very last thing you made for us and I'll never forget that day. One of the last things you did with Nathan was play Xbox with him and that memory holds such a big place in his heart. Jonathan was only 6 months old when you passed away and I'm devastated that he will never know you, but we will tell him all about you. I love you! You are missed so much and thought of often. Even more so as Mothers day approaches because you were such a great Mom. Happy Mothers day in Heaven Dana. We all miss you!

Dana. One of my best friends growing up. Sleep overs. Saturday trips. Out everyday together riding bikes. Summers were the best. Life took over and we started doing our separate things. I never hadid a sister and you were the closest I had to one.....
Posted by Douglas Hitt on 21st October 2014
missed but never forgotten.she was always full of life and fun. we all should learn from her to be happy and strong. and to enjoy life while we can.
Posted by Jaime Miller on 21st October 2014
Growing up, I never had a little sister, but I always wanted one. While spending all the time I did at the Santoni house as a child, I got to have all the joys of a little sister, without all the sibling fighting. Thank you for those memories. You had the best smile, could brighten anyone's day, and were such a great, devoted mother. I hope you know how much you are missed by everyone, always, and how often you are thought of....
Posted by Melissa T. on 20th October 2014
I will always remember you as a gorgeous, sweet, little girl. Please know how much you were loved & thought of. You will be missed tremendously ...
Posted by Lisa Howarth Kennedy on 19th October 2014
Dana I will always think of you as a beautiful, sweet, and shy little girl. I still cannot believe that you are gone. You grew into a wonderful mother that adored her children. You loved your family and friends and you are missed by so many people that knew and loved you. I pray that Daniel, Desiree, and Albert know how much you loved and protected them and that they know you are still with them, living in their hearts. I know you are a guardian angel to your loved ones now. You were a great Mom, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Cousin, Niece, and Friend. You're forever in our hearts and will remain in our daily thoughts. Rest in peace sweetheart...
Posted by Jennifer Coyle on 19th October 2014
Dana there are no words to explain how much I love and miss you. You were such a great Aunt to Kenny and Nathan and I'm devastated that Jonathan will never get to know you. You were so fun and full of life and we will never forget that. We will tell Jonathan all about you and how much we love you and loved being around you. We are all going to miss your cooking and your crafts and your beautiful smile. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you a million times. A piece of you lives on in your beautiful children and I am thankful for them. You were such a loving and devoted Mom, your children adored you. They were your whole world as you were theirs. I was blessed to have you as my sister I only wish we had more time. I loved you unconditionally, always have...always will. You are in my heart forever as well as in the hearts of my children, your children, Mommy and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing you.
