This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Daniel Mintz, 51, born on August 22, 1925 and passed away on September 24, 1976. We will remember him forever.



One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.

Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.

In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.

Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,

other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed

that during the low periods of my life,

when I was suffering from

anguish, sorrow or defeat,

I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,

"You promised me Lord,

that if I followed you,

you would walk with me always.

But I have noticed that during

the most trying periods of my life

there have only been one

set of footprints in the sand.

Why, when I needed you most,

you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,

"The times when you have

seen only one set of footprints,

is when I carried you."

DAD, Happy Birthday, I hope y'all are celebrating your birthday. I know Jeff always felt bad that he wasn't with you when you passed away, he was young and at that age he just wanted to hang out with his friends. But he always regretted it. He loved you more than anything. You raised a wonderful son and when I met him he was a lost soul, and I was just a loner so when we met the two of us clicked. The two of us became one and were always there for each other. Jeff changed and so did I, he became very responsible and I pushed him to go to college. He is very smart and I knew he could succeed and he did and even got his masters degree after many years and supporting our family. We were sooo proud of him and hopefully you are also. He is quite a man and I miss him soo much, my heart hurts, I lost my best friend, Please take care of him for me....Love you DAD <3

Happy Birthday Dad <3 I am hoping you, Ruth Gary, My Mom, Dad and Steve were There when Jeff went to heaven. I have a broken heart and miss Jeff soooo very much, the only thing that makes me feel better is knowing Jeff isn't in any pain anymore. He was sick from the day I met him and I don't understand how god made him suffer almost his whole. What a wonderful son you raised, he took care of me and our family and still is taking care of us. We all miss him very much and he is always in our thoughts, please take care of Jeff for me, he is my world and I miss him every minute of every day. I hope you all are celebrating your birthday in heaven.... LOVE YOU <3

Dad, How I wish I would have met you, everyone says that Jeff is just like you, then what a wonderful man you were. I thank you for giving me Jeff to complete me, he is my world. I can't even imagine him not being with me, I would be sooo lost. He is sooo sick and I wish I could take his pain away but I will take good care of him just as he has taken good care of me, Jen & Dan., until that day when he will go to be with you, Ruth, my mom & Dad & Steve. Someday I to will meet you in heaven and tell you what a selfless wonderful son you have raised... Love you <3

Dad, This September 24th you will have been gone 40 years some 2/3rds of my life. I am now almost nine years your senior and couldn't phathom leaving behind my wife and children at such a young age. The day you died the music literally stopped for me, I was dumfounded and lost like a sheep without a shepherd. No where to turn, no one for guidance. My first big error was selling off your shop because I was heartbroken being there and was running from my sorrow. If I had given it some time I may have been able to rally and continue your legacy, but I did not. From that point I was a man (boy) without direction and confused about my future. Unfortunately my solution was to be a wanderer and man of leisure a complete road to no where. In short order I met a young lady (Cheryl) who would later become my wife and mother of my children and your namesakes, Jenifer Dani (Jen) and Daniel (Dan). Due to my early lack of focus and misdirection it took more than 20 years of our life together until success took hold and I could unincumberently take care of my family the way you always did. I truly wish I could have gotten to know you better, but knowing what I know since your passing I better understand you as a person and some of my self inflicted guilt has been lifted. I love and miss you everyday. To be continued
