    I am saddened to learn that Danny has passed. He was a good student of mine. Danny was slow to be “told” what to do; he would and could do anything if he saw a “need” to do so. He was very astute; some teachers never saw this. My thoughts are with Richard and the entire family. May Danny rest in peace.
