Danny, it has been 38 years now that you were taken from us. You were so young, but strong in your beliefs. I miss you so very much. You are in my heart and I wait for the day that we will be together once again. I Love You more than words can say. Please save me a place. Your loving wife, Barb

I Love You! Barb

I went to high school with Dan. We shared a few classes and I got to know him. While not really being in his "circle" of friends he seemed to be a real stand up guy. As I look at this site, I count 3 out of 12 from Toledo that died, one being Daniel. I don't even think he finished his senior year, it seems like we were still in school when we heard the news. My heart goes out to all who knew him, may mankind someday grow beyond this deadly folly.

From a friend along the way,
