Thank you for letting me walk with you as your military helper in this difficult time. My sincerest condolences for the loss of such an impressive man. I’m honoured to have gotten to know him better through this tragedy.
Danny, I’m so saddened by the news. Remembering some of the great memories we had growing up, especially during university, puts a smile on my face. You have done some incredible things since then. You will be missed! Condolences to your family, Henry, and Eddie. God bless
