I went to Clarkstown High School with Danny before there was a north and south. I was a transfer student in my senior year. I sat next to him in homeroom and he was just the nicest guy. So sweet to me. I remember him so fondly. I remember his wife Raylene. Rest in peace Danny. You were a great friend. I hope you are happy in heaven.– Claudia Ann McLean
