    A true friend I will miss him

    Deepest sympathy to Danny's family and friends. My sisters and I grew up with Danny in church at Grace Baptist, Virgilina, Va. I reconnected with him and got to meet Joyce at a class reunion. I was so happy to see him and talk. He was the same sweet person that I remembered from church and school. He will be missed. Laura Poole Toms

    I will miss Cousin Dan. A good man, who always had a humorous story to tell us. It is sad to know he is gone from us.

    My sympathy is with your family in the passing of Dan. He truly loved making stews and sharing it with his fiends. May he RIP.

    While deeply saddened to hear of Dan's passing, I also know that he is in a better place. He truly was one of a kind, and a kind person of much help to my husband and myself. May he rest in peace. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
