I met Daniel when I was in kindergarden . Allen elementary school San Jose. I had just moved from Mississippi with my dad. I remember feeling so out of place at a new school, went from being in class with nothing but blacks to being the only black person in class. He was my first friend I had when I came back to San Jose we were like best friends on the playground. I would make him laugh because I was always trying to talk to all the girls in class. I moved away and came back to Alan and fourth grade and coincidently he was in my class again. He remembered me right away even remembered my name and made me feel welcomed all over again. It was me him and mark a. K. A. Bubba. I remember his father taking us to play basketball at open gym at Andrew Hill High School on Fridays. We would sometimes go with his dad to the softball games we'd be freezing our butts off outside late on Friday nights. I moved away again in the middle of the fourth grade school year , didn't see Daniel much after that but I would sometimes run into him. 1 thing I remember most about him was his attitude and personality. He was very welcoming and the nicest guy you'll ever meet . I remember when we were young he told me about his kidney problem what thing about that was he never let that stop you from doing anything. I see all these pictures people posting up with him but the 1 image I have of him in my head is when I first met him in kindergarten. Still hard to think that he's gone but I know god doesn't make mistakes and he had his place ready for him his Kingdom.
