Rest In Peace Danny. You were my older brother Ed´s childhood friend. You were very polite and kind. My parents always enjoyed your visits to our house on Bement Ave. I remember you were playing a board game with Ed and our Christmas tree fell on you. Mu Mother and Ed got the tree up , as you got up from the floor you shook your arm and yelled out " my bowling arm is hurt". The entire house erupted in laughter. Years later when we met up , I always enjoyed our conversations and I was impressed with your knowledge of world matters , your sense of humor and sports. There is a special place in heaven for you.
