To Boody and children. So sorry for your loss.
I’ll always think of Danny fondly and with a smile for his witty humor. We had great times together when we were footloose and fancy free. I’ll keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
Boody, my condolences to you and your family. I remember the super cute couple you and Danny were in those early days. I am so sorry for you loss and pray for peace and comfort in this difficult time.
Boody, I am so sorry for your loss. Seeing you and Danny together always brought a smile to my face knowing how much love you shared between you.
My prayers go out for you and your loved ones during this moment of loss.
We are very sorry to hear of Dan’s passing. He was a sales rep for us for many years and was just in our store, May 27th. You will be in our prayers, he was a great guy!
Boody-my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Patrice Matthews and I worked with Danny at Smaks while at Hogan. We had so much fun, laughing with/at Danny, as he would carry on at work. He was absolutely hilarious and had such a gift for humor. I can only imagine how truly he will be missed.
