    Daniel! We worked together for awhile, he was my partner and my buddy. He had the best sense of humor….EVER! He would always make me laugh at the most inappropriate times. His laugh was contagious. I am shattered beyond measure. To his family, nothing I can say will assuage your sorrow, but please know that I am sending prayers your way. May angels fly you to your rest, “Dan’l Boone”.

    Oh Danny …. I am heart broken.. I’ve known Danny since I was 6 and we were so hoping to see him at our class reunion a few years ago.. he kept me company on the phone while I drove to West Virginia for the funeral of another one of our class mates and I tried to convince him to come to the reunion a few months later. We last spoke last year and we compared stories of our beloved labs. He always made everyone laugh …. Rest In Peace my dear friend.
