    Ray and I met Danny in the early 80’s! We got to see him grow up over the years. Although he was a little shy he was always polite and friendly! He became a handsome man with a good outlook on life, trusting in God and good morals! He was a faithful son who there for his mom, helping her as needed while his dad has been recovering from a serious illness for over three years!! We loved you Danny and you will be certainly missed by all of the Thomas family!!
