Message: I canít believe itís been five years - I still miss Danny so. He loved his family. When he came to visit me in Tennessee in Sept 2000, we joked about him smuggling some of his mommaís good cooking in his suitcase for me to try. He brought a video of his family to share with me. He rented a blue Mustang convertible which we drove at night with the top down and the heater on.
He had a strong work ethic & how I wish he hadnít gone back to work that Tuesday after his vacation. He called me Monday morning while he was on vacation but I was so tired from my trip to San Antonio, I didnít answer the phone. Iíll always, always regret that.
But even if I had talked to him & encouraged him to take another day, I know he would have gone to work anyway. He was always on me to get a job (I was in school). I had brought some spicy pistachios to send to Danny because I knew he loved pistachios.
I have pictures that I want to get to his family. He was a good friend and very generous. He is missed.
