Lord, I have so many memories of Danial, Ive known him his whole life! Although weve had our share of issues through out the years, we always got past them! We were family! Danial had a good heart, he wasnt perfect but no one is, thats why God sent his only son to die for us to save us, but if you needed him, he was there! Hed help a stranger with no problem! He loved his Aunt Mary , my mom, his dads sister, he loved his daddy, he loved his family! Danial always loved to make a person laugh & have a good family time! I just ran into him just days before he passed and I just cant believe hes gone! Whenever we lost a family member, he was there, showing he cared! Life is so short, we just never know, I always felt hed be there and now hes not, it just doesnt seem real! I never felt so bad for my Uncle Murdis in all my days, all he had was his 2 boys, Danial being the oldest, my heart just breaks for his daddy, his brother & girls, He wil be missed by many But no one wil miss him more then his wife, Cora! She was with him more then anyone and now Hes gone! I can go on and on about my cousin, Ive been so mad at him at times but wed make up, thats what families do! Ive lost many ppl in my years and close to all of them, each is diff. Like Danial
