I was Dan's first friend when he came to FL. He always had a bright idea and unique style about him. I pray that he is shining down from above with his huge smile and laughing. God Bless Him and His Family and Friends. Many prayers and blessings. Gone way too soon.

I remember Daniel as a sweet, little blonde child, who stayed with us a couple of times while Bud & Michele went out...grandpa Tim would tease him and say "Don't give me no garbage!" and Daniel would throw his hands up and say "Garbage"...then they'd both laugh like crazy...I only regret not knowing him as he grew up...Rest in peace, dear Daniel

We have so memories so it’s hard to pick just one, but I’ll start with one of you being a protective big brother. :)

I must have been 8 or 9 maybe. We were swimming at the pool in our apartment complex and a girl shoved me under water and held my head under. When you saw what was going on, you quickly intervened and pushed her off me and pulled me up. 

You were always saving me from some kind of altercation (that was probably my own fault haha). 

I miss you every second of every day.
