Dad;
Was thinking about you again. I pray everyday that you are doing your thing up there. I know you are with us. All the kids are getting big. You have three additional grandsons. Theirs names are Jaxon Daniel, Wesley James, and Levi Lawrence. I will you were here to see all of your grandchildren. Jake is so smart, gets high 90s in every subject. Joshua is a wise guy, he has a heart of gold and is a very determined little boy, Jia is a diva. She loves makeup and shoes and clothes. I am running out of room to type but I wish you were here to see them. At times I wish you were here to talk to and get your wonderful advice from. You were one of a kind and you are surely missed. I will see you later.

I love you,
Lisa

Dad;
Was thinking about you today and how I wish you were here to see your first grand daughter. Her name is Jiavanna Louise(Louise after grandma of course). I miss you so much and wish you would have been around longer. You did put up a hell of a fight and I am so proud of you. I hope you are up there looking down on us and continuing to be a proud dad. My brothers are doing well too. David is still at Deli Boy and Richard is still busting his ass doing everything.
Jake is getting so big. He is in 3rd grade now and Joshua is 2 already. I will keep your spirit alive in my heart and I will never forget you. I LOVE YOU DADDY!!!!

Danny was a true one percenter. Someone I am honored to have known.

To Lisa:
Your father always made me feel welcome, whatever the situation. You have the personality and the smile of your Dad.

To Richard:
You are one handsome man. You inherited your fatherís beautiful long hair. Never change it.

To David:
As an unborn child in your Momís belly, you traveled more miles on the back of your Dadís H-D than most of the Yuppies of today can imagine. Itís in your soul.

Cheryl

PS. Jack is saddened by your loss also.

Dan was certainly unique!! I remember tending bar at Sacketts Restaurant and him being there....cracking me up!!!! I definately had to drive him home a few times!
Too many years have passed since I saw him last, he will be missed!
To his family, you have my sympathy. I knew the kids when they were little and I know what it's like to loose a father. Time does heal all wounds and remember to always remember the good times!

Danny, You were the best friend that I could have asked for. You were my friend through thick and thin and for that I will always smile when I speak of the time that we spent on the road. The playing "Craps" for gas money to Daytona to the time I was flat out and you helped me recover. For that i will always be greatful and am glad to know that you are at peace and pain free. OFFO

Dad,

You will be missed by many. You have impacted many lifes and will be remembered as the "storyteller". You had the best of stories, which were all true and interesting. Thanks for being the dad that you were, it made me who I am today. I will always hold the memories of us together and all the trouble we caused for mom while she was working and while you were suppose to be watching me. See you later and keep your head up. You are not in pain anymore and you are resting peacely. May you be able to ride forever in the sky.

P.S. You were right....no one is going to tell you that you cant walk and would not be able to ride.....See you later..

Love your daughter,

Lisa
