Bonnie, I just heard of Danny's passing today. I just finished watching the Funeral Service. It was a real tribute to Danny! I remember all your tender love & care of Danny when he was diagnosed with diabetes. You shared with me how ya'll shopped together when he was home so he could carry healthy food on his long trips for work . He was Blessed to have such a devoted & attentive wife who always tried to go the extra mile to meet your family's needs! My heart aches for you, Dear Bonnie! Please know I care & will keep you continually in my prayers. Your Sister-in-Christ, Sandra Parker

Bonnie I really didn't know Danny that well but I have memory of him that I have never forgotten. We went to your house for Christmas dinner and he cooked a London Broil. It was the best I'd ever had. So I ask him how he prepared it. He went through every step with me. What an awsome man. So sorry he is no longer here but definitely know he is watching over you and his family.

I remember a lot of fun times with Danny growing up, he was the closest boy neighbor my age back in the 60's and 70's. We would take shortcuts through the woods and some fields to fish all day and just get into mischief like boys do. My thoughts and prayers are with all the family and friends I know that he will truly be missed. May God give you all comfort and understanding during this time.
