I haven't seen Danny since 1971 as juniors at South High School.  I just remember him to be a great person;, always happy and upbeat.  Heaven is a better place with Danny's arrival.  R.I.P. our good friend and classmate.

Sorry to hear about Danny. We go way back to Jr. High. Saw him at one of the reunions and had such a great visit. Talked about how we both had a crush on each other way back when, about his racing. He gave me a race car pin which I have and cherish. I remember his great eyes, smile and laugh. He will be missed but not forgotten.
