Condolence & Memory Journal

Rest easy my old friend. My thoughts and prayers are with your loved ones.

I grew up with Kenny and, by that, Danny and the whole family. Danny was always laughing a "snickering and sneaky" sort of laugh around us. He loved to shoot pool among other things and was usually at his brother's pool hall having fun with Johnny Thigpen and joking around. I always liked his girlfriend, and later wife for life, Jean. He was always surrounded by all kinds of friends from school, many of which I came to know though I was younger. I am saddened to hear of Danny's passing and am sending prayers to all involved. May you rest in peace Danny.

Danny and I grew up together in Dorchester. I spent more time at Danny's home than my own. As the years passed, we lost track of each other but I have great memories of Danny. Thanks to Danny and his family I learned many things. Among them was how to play serious card games, shoot pool and ride a motorcycle. We had a lot of fun! I am sorry for your loss.
