Terri and Dave I am so sorry to hear about Daniel. I will always remember the times at Dees when you guys were waiting for your food and we would all play that silly game on the tablet. He was such a joy to be around and I am so glad to have met him. He always had a smile on his face. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers . Love always Shannan
