    Another loss to the big group, but it is a homecoming for Dano and the others who have recently passed on to continue their golfing fun. There are now four of our original players starting another “Big Group,” this time on heavens greatest course.

    May God Bless and Keep you Danny!

    I was deeply saddened to learn of Danny’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult period. Danny was one of the first people I met as a junior golfer at Arizona CC. Still remember the many enjoyable rounds we shared. I’m going to miss you, partner!

    I am so sorry for your loss. May the outpouring of sympathy, the kind acts of friends and strangers, as well as your memories give you comfort to help you endure the days ahead. The Bible also offers comfort. “For God is near to those broken at heart. “ Ps 34:17,18. Our Creator promises that there will soon be a time when “death will be no more.” Revelation 21:4.
