Mrs. Mary Lou, Adam, and Mark,
I can’t begin to explain what this man meant to me as a child in his church. He was my strongest connection to God during my impressionable years and has always been a source of inspiration and comfort for me. Though I hadn’t seen him in over 20 years, he has been and always will be with me. ?
My sincerest condolences to you all
Adam & Family, we are sending our thoughts and prayers to you during this difficult time. If there is anything we can do please let us know.
My family is so sorry for your family’s loss Adam, we will keep your family in our prayers.
My deepest sympathy to Mr. Danner’s family and loved ones. I was a student of his at Highland Rim and recall him being smart and serene. I have fond memories of his teaching the class to play the recorder. I am grateful for that experience he provided me. I wish peace and comfort to the Danner family in this difficult time.
We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
I had mr. Danner in 6th grade at Highland Rim Elementary School he was a real good teacher taught me a lot
Dear Mary Lou, I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Charles. My prayers are with you, Mark, and Adam.
Love, Martha Wolf
Mark, I am so sorry for your loss! I can’t think of of calling your Dad anything but Mr. Danner. Many teachers passed thru my young learning life. The best memory of your Dad is learning to play the beginners flute. He is one one of few teachers that left a learning experience in my my short academic life.
Mary Lou and Family,
I am saddened to hear of the loss of Charles. I have fond memories of you both. Thoughts and prayers sent your way.
Mary Lou I am so sorry for your loss of Charles. He was truly an outstanding man. Though I will be unable to attend the funeral know that my thoughts are with you. Thank you and Charles for the years of friendship and support.
Mrs Danner & families, so sorry for your loss. May God comfort you all during this difficult time, God Bless You All, Teresa & Mary Partin
Mary Lou and family, we have such fun memories of you when we were all so young and attended St. John. We pray comfort and peace at this difficult and sad time. You are in our thoughts.
If you are family or friend of Charles Danner you have been richly blessed. I pray you hold those blessing closer in the coming days. Mr. Danner taught me at Petersburg Elementary. I often still am reminded of those wonderful songs he taught us! We had an eighth grade reunion a few years back and he graced us with his presence. I cherish the photos of that day.
