Daniel was one of those people that would cause you to immediately, smile upon noticing his presence as he'd be headed in your direction to shake your hand. He made people feel good, and his optimism and high spirits were so contagious! I'll never forget when he became a fellow Director of the Albuquerque Board of Realtors. He had an initial habit of arriving late to meetings, but when he waltzed in to the meeting room, he was now the best-dressed person in the room...always in high style and oozing with enthusiasm and a great sense of humor. He was always helpful, generous, and a great ambassador of our industry. You left us too soon, amigo----and you will be missed by many..........Rest in Peace, Daniel.

To Daniel's family - My thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of Daniel. His sudden departure is inconceivable and it has created a void within the hearts and souls of all who were fortunate to have known him during his earthly journey. Daniel touched many lives and his memory will forever live in our hearts. He was indeed a beautiful and exuberant, loving soul. May your faith in our Lord keep you strong and may He provide healing and understanding according to his Word with each passing day. Sincerely, Delores Cisneros and family
