    I had only known Daniel for a short time working with Adult Day Services but it was long enough to know what a beautiful and kind spirit he had. I loved taking his hands and looking into his eyes and seeing the gentleness and kindness there. We all miss him so very much. I send love and prayers to his precious family.
