Danny was a good kid and friend. I remember my dad coming home and telling me about him after working a shift for the Police Dept. I was in shock for days.

Danny was a young boy who was energentic, happy, smiling and full of spunk.  I met Danny through a High School Psychology project.  I was to mentor/tutor a student at the college weekly.  I learned how Danny was patient, listening, and then happy to meet weekly.

There isn't a time that I don't think about him.  Danny is one of the reasons that I am in education, a reason that I stay in education and a reaston that I continue to stay in education.

Goc bless you Danny~

He was one of the nicest people you could ever meet. Such a tragic end for a wonderful person.

I did not meet Danny personally, I arrived in McCook in February and he passed away in May of that year. But one thing touched me deeply was seeing a young man like me, we were the same age, die that way. I was really saddened by your parents and relatives. Few things marked my life and one of them was Danny's death because after 33 years I still feel the same sadness that I felt that day when I think of what happened. So I think he's fine and that not everything was lost. I'm sure about the good memories he left and then this makes me feel good again.
