I’m so sorry to hear of Daniel’s early departure from this world. He sounds like he was a wonderful man. I’m sure he is more than flying with the angels. Look to Jesus, as He promises to comfort all who mourn. (Matt. 5:4) Grief is a process, so during it, “cast all your cares and anxieties and grief on Him, because He CARES for you.” Our love and prayers for all of you.

I wish there would have been more time, I wish I would have talked with you more. I’m going to miss you big brother, I love you more than I ever showed. Fly with the Angels. You’ll live forever in my heart. Until we meet again brother, until we meet again.
