Dearest Karla, Carson, and Cassidy, There are no words to truly express how much you are in my prayers and thoughts after losing your precious husband and Daddy. I knew him before and after he got sick but I always loved him to tease me and he did all the time! Giving me a hard time with that twinkle in his eye I realized what a big softie even though he tried not to be all the time! He loved to boss not only me but everyone from his lawn chair at Toad Suck or have us waiting on him hand and foot! He would bluster about but knowing how much he loved his family (all of them) but especially you three made him even more lovable! I also loved when he would try to run over you in one of his new fancy cars...laughing all the way and then turning around and coming back to give you a compliment and boss you too! I lost my breath when I heard the news, even though I know how he suffered and thankful he no longer does. I do have a vision of him sitting at a poker table with Carter, Lanny, along with Frank Sinatra, & all of the "Brat Pack" playing big hands and loving it when he wins! Not many people saw the sweet side of him but he was and the times I talked to him when he was sick or having problems he never complained, he was just worried about you all. And Karla that man LOVED you more than life itself, just the way he looked at you made my heart swell as I hoped someday I would have someone look at me that way. You will always know that you were loved more than words can express. And you are the strongest woman I know having had to live with his illness too for 13 years. But you did it with grace and love for the man who adored you. I did get my wish and was loved completely but unfortunately I lost him way too soon but we did have that wonderful special time. And being the football fanatics and players both Danny and John were I know they have met and are playing games in heaven every day and being the stars of each one! I am so thankful for the friendship I have had with your family and I remember meeting you Karla for the first time as it was about a month before Cassidy was born! I do love all of you and my heart hurts for you all and for everyone who loved him. I too am selfish as I miss him too and my prayers are with all of you. I know God is watching over you every day and will be there to help you through this extremely rough time, and remember some days you just have to smiile through the tears. I know we can't be too dramatic because Danny is watching and bossing us to remember that he is in the better place and is waiting patiently for all those he loves. And I am not about to let him catch me whining...he would never let me live it down! Love to you all...Lynn Tuesday, June 19, 2012

To Karla, Carson and Cassidy, I am so very sorry for your loss. Danny was a great man to so many people. Because of Danny, I gained a greater understanding of the business World with my first real job out of college. Danny giving me a chance to be successful, is something I will never forget. I am happy to say that I knew Danny on more than a business level and considered him a friend. I am glad that I was able to see him and let him meet my son the last time we were in Conway. Please know that Danny will always be looking down with that great smile and laugh. Take care and keep God first.
