I remember, during my college years, many weekends spent with the Danner family and what a fun time was always had there. Funnel cakes made at fairs, bubble wrap everywhere, and what a smile Mr. Danner was always able to keep on my face. May you remember all the wonderful times and know he is in a better place now, watching over you still.. My love and prayers. Bonnie

My Dear Brenda and Family,

Words can't begin to express how sad I am for you and the family. Dennis was such a great man to work with at church and on mission trips. He can never be replaced, but whoever takes over his position has some mighty big shoes to fill! My last vision of the two of you was on the trip to St. Augustine just a short time ago. I remember the two of you walking through the parking lot holding hands.........true love never ends! I know he was truly the love of your life and it was so obvious! I will keep you all in my prayers. Please call me if I can help in any way or if you just need to talk. I'm here for you.
Love and peace to all, Carlene

Dear Leigh and Mrs. Danner,
My mother called me this morning to let me know about the passing of your dad and father. I was so shocked and sorry to hear the news. Mr. Danner was always so kind to me when we were hanging out together and when he tried to teach me how to shag. Mrs. Danner, I always loved to watch you two dance together because you always smiled at one another as though each were the best thing on the planet! I know that you will miss him terribly, but I bet the angels are enjoying a fine dancing partner!

Brenda and family,
Claude and I are saddened to learn of Dennis' passing and your great loss. No one is ever prepared for such a great loss as yours. We felt an almost immediate bond when we first met you at Mother and Dad's. You and Dennis have always been good examples of the steadfastness, joy and love that only God can bring to our lives. Dennis will always be with you as his love and character influenced each of you into becoming the person you are today. We are so sorry for your loss, and we will continue to lift you up in prayer. Love and prayers.
