Linda and girls! I was shocked and heartbroken when I heard yesterday iof Dannys death. Just doesnt seem possible. When I told my kids about it, Brent remembered Danny coached his and Britts ball team. And said that it was at your house that he learned the secret of the Cracker Barrel triangle puzzle. Please know that you are definitely in our hearts! Much love!!!!
