Wendy~I can't tell you enough how heavy my heart is with the loss of your brother. It was just last week we were talking and laughing on the phone. Danny endured such pain yet he was light hearted and my heart ached for him. I went and visited him in the hospital the day before he passed and I brought him flowers. They paled in beauty however compared with Danny's beauty. He was truly a beautiful, kind man and I will miss him forever. Danny will always be in my prayers. With deepest sympathies to you and all of Danny's family, Always in my heart, Carol Lucey-Fish
