    Danny was my husband’s best friend and in turn became a dear friend of mine and our children. He was our first son’s Godfather and spoiled all our children like they were family. He loved talking about his childhood, his time in the US army, and his life with Virginia and their family. He is sadly missed but memories of him will live in us. God bless his soul. Kelly Cullen
