Gloria, I just now saw that Danny had passed. This breaks my heart for you and your Children and grandchildren. I pray God will cover you with his blanket of love and peace. I don’t like losing my family and we have in the last few years. I will have you in my prayers and if you need anything at all let me know. With much love, Vicki
