My heart is heavy, Dan was such a wonderful, kind hearted and genuinely great man-just from the short time that I knew him. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Dan was always a gentleman and kind soul. I lived in the caretakers house at St Rose Cemetery and after his father passed away he would meet his mother there to spend time at his grave side. Loved his family tremendously. God Speed and prayers to the entire Brennan family.
I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I graduated from Sharon High with Danny. He will always be in my memory as a true gentleman. May God keep and protect you all as he embraces Danny into His Kingdom.
So sorry for your loss, Abby.
sue-my sincere thoughts and prayers to you and your family on your tragic loss.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
So sorry for your loss.
