Daniel was (is) an amazing little boy, bringing much joy, happiness, love, and hope to many people, and in his time of peace brings much sorrow, heart ache, and yet happiness. For he showed all what is truly precious and dear. Every squeak (laugh), smile, and gentle look melted each heart and every soul was put at ease. In his time he broke barriers that seemed impenetrable allowing enemies to be friends and broken family's whole. Even in his anguish and sickness he brought no end to the love, happiness, joy, hope, and peacefulness he kept sharing with all. In our hearts and all those he was around will always remember this precious little boy.
