Lord Jesus Christ, who willest that no man should perish, and to whom petition is never made without the hope of mercy, for Thou saidst with Thine own holy and blessed lips: "All things whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, shall be done unto you"; I beg of Thee, O Lord, for Thy holy Name's sake, to grant me at the hour of my death full consciousness and the power of speech, sincere contrition for my sins, true faith, firm hope and perfect charity, that I may be able to say unto Thee with a clean heart: Thou has redeemed me, O God of truth, who art blessed for ever and ever. Amen.

I had the honor of knowing Danny while on my tour in Puerto Rico. We went out a few times socially, crossed paths professionally, attended church together every Sunday, and I would visit him monthly at his home. When I think of Danny, the words kind, strong, and grounded come to mind. Danny loved his God and his country and served both righteously and honorably. Yes, Danny did die a hero, but most importantly he lived a hero. ‘Til we meet, ‘til we meet…’til we meet, at Jesus’ feet….” Rest now, Brother….
