Danny was one of the very first people to come to Memorial ICU when Roy was in critical condition. He was so kind as to bring a gift card for food. We had a great chat and it was such a beautiful and thoughful gift and sentiment. Although Roy didn't know, until afterward, we often talk about how Danny is such a kind and caring person. My heart breaks for his family and my wish for them is to find Peace in the beautiful memories and legacy he left. Safe home my friend. Martha and Roy Swindelle

Words are useless to describe the sorrow and loss felt with the passing of our beloved friend Danny. We know he is now with his Father in heaven. He was simply a good man. He was so proud of all of you. He would light up with excitement when he talked about you all. He loved his family with all his heart. Even before you came into the world he wanted the very best for you all. Danny determinedly set about the business of providing the best he could for all of you with all his love. He had such a big heart. He enjoyed doing for others and gave freely and joyfully of his time. As we remember Danny, we think about what a big, warm and wonderful personality he had. We can see that huge smile on his friendly face. Always the optimist. Willing to help in any way. We love Danny and we love you all and pray God will continue to bless and keep you always. May your memories be as vivid as his love is for you all.
