Dear Jane, So sorry for your loss. We can't remember when Dan didn't have a smile on his face especially when we were sharing jokes in homeroom at LHS; such a gentle soul. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.
I want to express my sadness and condolences to Dan’s family. I got to know Dan when we both worked at IBM . He loved to talk fishing and music with me and about his wonderful big family. He always did a great job and I enjoyed seeing him there. Prayers to you all.
My sympathies to the Alberts family. I was a classmate of Daniel's sister Allison. My heart goes out to you during this difficult time. You're all in my prayers.
Dear Alberts Cousins,
I am so sorry to hear of Danny's passing. I am now even more happy that my brothers and I came out to visit you all a few years back. It was wonderful to see Danny and everyone else. I have fond memories of when Janie and Danny came out one summer to stay with us on Long Island when I was around sixteen or seventeen. I believe that my good old friend Chris Fiore and I took both Janie and Danny to see Earth Wind and Fire at the Nassau Coliseum. I didn't know Danny well, but he always struck me as a gentle soul.
