    Prayers to all the Danos. James , I was your Head Start teacher who came into your home many years ago. I stopped to see your Mom about 20 years ago. Loved your Mom and Dad. They were great parents. I attended your High School graduation and was so proud of you as were your Mom and Dad. I am now in my mid 80’s and find it hard to walk or I would attend the service. My best to you and your family!

    I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. I remember spending the
    night at your house several times when we went to school together. I always thought
    a lot about your Mom and Dad. Our prayers are with you.
