-- W. Robert O'Neal (NNHS 1971)
Oh, Robert, I am so sorry to hear this! You and your family have my sincerest condolences. Although I never knew Danny, it is obvious from the outpouring of responses to his obituary that everyone who did loved and admired him for the fine man he was.
Thanks for all that you do for all of us.

Certainly, Robert! It is my great privilege.

|Appreciate prayers for my
momma, Tena Hensel, and our family. She suffered a stroke this morning.
She's still the strong lady that she has always been and remembers
everything I said to her about it this morning when I got ready to call
911. Unfortunately she is paralyzed on her left side but she can still
talk to us and understand everything. Thank you all.
Oh, no, Sherry, I'm so sorry! Please give her our love and let her know that she is in our prayers - as are all of y'all!
