Danny ,
Another birthday has come up on us, and the pain from losing you hasn’t gotten any better. Life doesn’t stand still for no one no matter life stressors throw at us. so much has happened since the day you left. Katrina had Maddox on your birthday. He’s a big little boy. I think if you were still here with us, you would kidnap and spoil him. I have also become a grandma to an amazing little boy named Lucas. And I sure if you were still here with us you would not let me live it down about finally being a grandma. For the record, it’s a lot cooler than I thought it would be. Its amazing how you can be having a bad day ,but see your grandchild smile or hear their silly laugh can turn your whole day around. Thanks for all the little signs letting me know your still with us at least in spirit. I love and miss you very much big brother. Rest in peace.
Cindy

Danny , another year has gone by which only seems like a month .The pain is the same and missing you is the same as the day you left. What helps me get by is knowing you are with your Son Nathan, I know you are happy now .It just hurts that you both are not here. I love you both so very very much. Mom & Grandma

Danny, It seems like only yesterday you left us , the hurt has never stopped and never will. If only it could be 50 years back now the Dr would be placing you in my arms that was the best day of my life because you were my first baby. I love you dearly all your life and just as much today. I miss you so bad but you know that. My thoughts are with you today and always Happy Birthday Danny .

It doesn’t seem like it has been almost 4 years since you left us. Life flies by so fast and it seems more and more people take it for granted. I didn’t realize just how much moments in time, you also held close to your heart until I found a leather diary in which you had written down every word and memory you had from the last visit you had with my /our dad. Not a lot of men , would show their emotion and put pen to paper to reveal their emotions like that. But you had a heart of gold, so I understand why. I wished I could see you on your birthday today but I know I will see you in “some type of sign “ today. Love and miss you lots!
