Thank you to everyone writing condolences. Its nice to see how many people got to experience their life with Daniel in it. I know I thank God I got the short time I did with him. He changed my life for the better and will continue to do so with many, many great memories. I can't wrap my mind around the fact he's really gone but there has to be a reason for it. I will always love him and can't express how much I miss him already.
