Today as we celebrate the life of a wonderful man let us all remember the man Danny “Papa” was. Until he last day Danny showed respect and perfect mannerisms to everyone. He used his “Yes ma’am & No “ma’am right up to his last words and shook hands with any man that entered his room. He was a man of respect and caring for others. This community has lost a great man. So in honor of Danny, please show care, compassion and respect to others because that’s what he would do. We will miss you Papa. We love you.
