Sending prayers for all the family. I did not know Danny as he is younger than me but went to school with Sally & Larry. I was also sad to hear that Sally also passed away. We were cheerleaders together at Madison.

I first met Danny when we were students at Madison Junior High School and worked with him when we were both in college. He was one of the nicest person I ever knew. Always had a cheerful attitude. So sorry for his passing. RIP Danny.
