    So sorry for your loss… I remember Danny as the biggest kid and prankster… He was loved by all that he met.. He never met a stranger he was just that kind of Guy.. In the short time that we had together was fantastic he made me feel like i was the only person around when i was with him.. i have never stopped thinking about him or what if… Big mistake on my part… i so know how it feels to loose that one special person that can never be replaced.. So sad his life was cut soooo short but God need an awesome angel and he got it with Danny…. Danny you will truly be missed by all… You now have no pain and can dance around and do what ever it is you wanna do.. My prayers and thoughts are with the entire Jenkins family as well as all the people whom Danny has touched in his life.. My love for him never went away even today it’s still there.. I’m so heart broken as i know you all are … Just keep it in mind that he is watching over us all
