Sincerest condolences. I met Dan at his sister's wedding. We shared a house together for a weekend in the Colorado mountains. My first and lasting impression was of an outgoing and affable man. The kind of person you want to sit next to during a wedding feast. We swam with our sons, ate like kings. In the short time I knew him, I had a lot of fun with Dan. Rest in peace buddy. You are a good soul

Dan- I really miss you, and I hope you know how much I looked up to you...always. When I was little and visiting you in Jersey, I remember you went to an amusement park with your friends. You brought me home a ceramic unicorn piggy bank that you won for me. For the next several years, I was obsessed with unicorns and had to have unicorns on all my notebooks and folders for school all because of my Big Cousin Dan. When I was about 12, you bought me a bracelet with the nickname you gave me (which I will not divulge in a public forum! ;) ), and I wore that bracelet everyday until it finally fell apart. As an adult, when you visited me in Chicago, Andy was fairly new in my life. You insisted on having a private conversation with him where you grilled him about his intentions; Andy says that he was more nervous to meet you that day than he was to meet my dad! I knew since he had your approval, he must be a pretty great guy. Thank you for always looking out for me and being my "coolest" cousin- something you were never shy about reminding me of! ;) I love you and hope that you rest in peace.

Dan- I know you will be missed by so many loving people! Especially the McKimson family. Stories of your humor always followed McKimson's back to Chicago for all of us to enjoy. Kelly looked up to her cousin Dan very much and always had pictures of your times together to share. I hope you feel the love of everyone surrounding you now. Big hugs ang many thoughts to Kelly's Aunt Betty, Uncle Ray & cousin Katie.

I am shocked and saddened to hear of Danny's passing. I didn't know him well, but Betty was such a good friend to my Mom and a tremendous support to her after my Dad passed and my heart just aches for her and Ray. I am so, so sorry for your family's loss.
Shannon Purdy left a message on December 22, 2011:
Danny you will be missed by all. I am just glad I knew you and could say you have been a friend since Thomas Jefferson. You always made me laugh and smile and you gave the greatest bear hugs ever! Rest in peace.

Betty & Ray, There just are no words capable of expressing the depth of our heartfelt sympathy. The years of WTPR & OVMS found Danny & Timmy together like brothers - filling our homes with their pranks, jokes, laughter and such happiness. We will always cherish those precious memories. (I will always remember the "super studs" picture before the big dance)! We can't begin to grasp the magnitude of your grief. Please know that the miles between us have not diminished our love and appreciation of your friendship. Katie, I have lost a brother so I can identify with your loss. Luke, please know that your Daddy was such a wonderful young man, and though he made some bad choices, he loved you with all his heart! Danny, I rejoice that you are now truly at peace and are now sharing eternity with Amy. We miss you but so look forward to seeing you again when our time comes. Betty, Ray, Katie & Luke, Our prayers are with you - May God's neverending love and peace fill your hearts and heal this painful loss. We love you!!!!!

Danny, Thank you for all the laughs over the years. You could always make me laugh even when I didn't feel like it. I will always remember you picking me up for school jamming out to KC and the sunshine band and screaming "NATTTTTT NATTTTT!" off of your balcony. I am so glad we got back in touch these last few years and I will miss you terribly. I know Amy is glad to see you. Mr. and Mrs. O'Donnell, I'm so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with your family. I love you, Danny. Rest in Peace.

Dan it's Donny. I just need you to know that I considered you like a brother. Words cant describe how much I am going to miss you. I keep thinking any minute I am going to get a phone call arguing about sports. I was honored to have you in my wedding and of course everybody loved you! You were an absolute joy! I keep praying that this is all a horrific dream. You were always so smart and funny with an amazing personality. You and I had so many ups and downs together but I wouldn't give it up for the world! Our memories alone could have been written in a book! I am going to miss you so much that it is going to be so hard for me to get through this! Please visit me in a dream or however you would like. I know you will always be looking down on me critizing me but in a good way and I would love that I just want to apologize if I was not always there when you needed me and I think it is sad that it takes something like this for me to realize that! You were a wonderful father no matter what anybody said. I know you loved your son more life it self. Please RIP and know that you will never be FORGOTTEN! Love always, Donny D

I will always cherish the fun memories we've shared. I'll never forget singing and putting on "plays" at Christmastime in CT, swimming in the pool in Manorville, always eventful graduation parties and in recent years our sometimes heated (but friendly) political debates. I can't ever look at a NY Post without thinking of you. Though we may have disagreed about politics (big time!) and we may have drifted apart in recent years, I never stopped caring about you and loving you as my cousin. I regret that I did not take a moment to tell you that in person. I hope you are at peace now. Your sense of humor will be dearly missed. Rest in peace, Cousin Dan. With love, Marybeth
