We wish we could be there to hug you all.  It must bring comfort to know how much he was loved and respected by everyone that had the honor to know him.  He was more than an uncle to me. He was a great teacher of life, had a wonderful sense of humor and was great comfort to me when I lost my parents and sister.  There will never be another Daniel in my life.  He will be greatly missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the family always.  Robert, Suzy, Matt, Anna, Emma, Mark, Lara, Olivia and Sofia Harrison
