Matthew (husband) God saw Danielle getting tired and a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around her and whispered "Come to Me." With tearful eyes you & family watched her and saw her pass away. Although you loved her dearly, you could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
Kalen (stepson) And you should always know, wherever you may go, no matter where you are, Your stepmom, Danielle will never be far away.
Jill (mother) May you take comfort in knowing an angel is watching over you.
Tony (father) May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead.
Danielle & meet in elementary...
Lost touch sometime after high school. Facebook brought us back together. Danielle wasn't only a Facebook collection of friends, we actually chatted, inbox & recently texted each other. Danielle and I reminisced about our childhood, Danielle had a memory that I had forgotten all about.... She reminded me of a birthday party she attended for me at McDonald's.... WHOA talk about a flashback!!! I had told Danielle how I was so jealous of her childhood, that in my eyes she had everything, she laughed at me. I guess when were kids we always think someone else's life is better then our own. Danielle's family was active in the community her family had hosted the Japanese foreign exchange student program in our city, that's the place we all went to get our Japanese student, even my family participated (LOTSA FUN!) Danielle & I even talked about our lives now. I wanted her to know that the picture of her & Matt titled "sigh wish every day was like this" was my favorite & when I grow up I wanna have a picture just like that with my best friend. Danielle had told me how her & Matt & his son, their son met and how he was her angel & best friend. We also talked about her & mines health problems.... Danielle had said she had her good & bad days. We talked bout my health issues with scleroderma. There were times when she was laid up in bed not feeling well, there were days she was waiting for her mom to fly in to help out & there was a time when she had told me doctors have her a clean bill of health..... People are surprised when they hear of Danielle death because they didn't even know she was ill. Maybe it because Danielle was so happy to hear about your accomplishments & families. When I think about it now, I believe she down played her cancer with some & even me. I also would go to Danielle for advice. I knew she was a lawyer in another state. I knew laws were different from state to state and Danielle never failed to remind me of that too. I didn't care I went to danielle for she was one smart cookie especially for her words of encouragement & wisdom. Danielle always lifted my spirits, gave me hope, encouragement & she made me laugh too. I recently needed some words of encouragement so I had text Danielle & I was off texting only to look on Facebook and see that Danielle & her family were sight seeing in Hawaii. Never did Danielle tell me she was on vaca, I had even asked if she was busy through text & she replied "No" it wasn't till I had seen her pictures on Facebook and realize OMIGAWD how rude of me, I soon text Daniele back and told her "I'm sorry didn't know you were on vaca, I'll talk to you when your home" she replied, "thank you". See even on vacation Danielle was there for her friends. I am so lucky for having the chance to meet Danielle, have her as a childhood friend & now as into our adult lives. I will cherish our memories & our chats. You will forever be missed!!!!
