If the Army and the Navy ever looked on Heaven's scenes, they will find the streets are guarded by the UNITED STATES MARINES!! (Danny used to tell me that all the time...and I know he's watching the streets up there in his dress blues and makin everyone laugh)
Danny........Oh what to say about my Morris. Well for starters I NEVER in my life imagined that him and I would become best friends. I'll never forget when I first saw him. He was not someone I expected to love more than anything and end up sharing all my secrets with. I'll never forget he always introduced me as his girlfriend everywhere we went. He even told all his Marine friends that I was his girlfriend. He was so silly. He could ALWAYS make me laugh. Him and I could laugh for hours about nothing. And his hugs could make my worst day in the world be ok. He was the most amazing best friend anyone could ask for and I will miss all our walks in the morning, getting cappucinoes at Sheetz, Danny's lovely car, the fun we had in hawaii, band trips, everything we did together. I remember we always used to get in trouble in band cuz we talked too much. I was always turned around talking to him.
When Danny first started talking about joining the military I told him I would be there for him and support him no matter what and that's what I did. I'll never forget the day he told me he was joining the Marines. I am still so PROUD of everything he did and thankful that he was willing to give his life for something he believed in. Danny introduced me to another amazing Marine, Nicholas Hurley. I believe Danny and God both knew that Nick and I would need each other and now we do more than ever. So thank you Danny....and since I know you're reading this watch over Nick and all the rest of the boys so they can come home safe and soon. Everyone will miss you. You touched everyone's heart. Even my military ladies were affected by this and they never met you. I'm so PROUD to call you my BEST FRIEND. You did the most selfless thing that ANYONE in this world could do and for that I thank you. It's people like you that have helped keep us free. My Heart, My Best Friend, My HERO, My Marine, My Life! You are an amazing person and I will NEVER forget you. ONCE A MARINE, ALWAYS A MARINE!
Semper Fi my love
GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN THAN TO LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR A FRIEND!
