This man was a Dad to me, more then my own father would ever be. I looked up to him a lot growing up, with my sister and brother, while in the custody of him and his wife my Aunt Diana. He was my idle, also a hero to me, did everything with him and went everywhere with him as well. He will FOREVER be in my heart, along with so many others... Love You Always Uncle Danny(pops), you will be very much so missed, but never ever forgotten. my thoughts and prayers go out to the rest of all my family that going through this really hard, sad, and emotional time.... LOVE YOU ALL

Dear Danny.
May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face, and
rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May god hold you in the palm of his hand.........

My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. Danny was a great man and we always had such fun with him when he arrived home. The place always seemed a bit brighter. He had a story for every occasion usually about his family or the army or someone he remembered from old. He will be sadly sadly missed. We will raise a glass to him here in Broadford, and maybe have a little waltz up the road in his memory. Rest in Peace dear uncle and take care of mom.

Pádraig, Ayesha and Brefní
