    Danny you will be missed very much by your family. Danny showed us in a big way how important his kids and grandkids were to us this last year. I am glad we were able to meet him and see for ourselves the love he had for his grandbabies. I know he will be sorely missed by one little girl and her moma.

    I am so sorry to hear of Showboat’s death. It was such a shock to me to hear of it. We’ve spent many hours side-by-side at the library doing our research and discussing our findings. My love, respect, and support to Showboat’s family. May he Rest in Peace!

    I am heartbroken over George’s passing but so grateful to have become friends while I worked at the Library. He loved doing genealogy and I enjoyed knowing him and talking while we searched for ancestors. I was always glad to see him there. I will truly miss seeing him. My sympathies to all his family.
