As I think of you every day I just wish I could have seen and met you but you died when my mother( Maureen your daughter) was six, I have your first name( danese) as my middle name and so does your great granddaughter now. As I see her growing up with your name it makes me so happy and I know your watching over her. She is always laughing out of no where and I know that your up there just talking to her. I miss you so much Poppa Dan. I know that if you were here me and Lilly would have loved to be around you. I know Mammy misses you very much. We all love you Poppa dan. May you forever rest in peace.
