My sweet Danny,

Well, here we are.....January 10th, 2009.  On this day, eight years ago, you left us to go home to Heaven.  Not a day goes by, without thinking of your sweet smile and your funny ways.  You brought sunshine and laughs to my life and now I sit with those memories which comfort me.  I try to push the sad memories away, the ones in which you fought to stay alive,  your battered body from all the radiation and chemo. and most especially, the sadness and pain I saw in your eyes for so long.  Oh, the ache in my heart when I think of those many days of your suffering.  And so, today, I cry.   But I also picture you with all your friends and relatives that have also gone to Heaven and I know in my heart you're happy.  You will always be a part of me.  I carry you close to my heart every day of my life.  I love you Danny and I miss you so much. 

Peace & Love ~ Mom

Well Dan, I'm sure you've been busy, preparing Grandma Grabley for her journey. She died peacefully Christmas Eve morning and was buried on Tuesday.  So be sure to show her all around. Stay close to Aunt Belinda and Aunt Tracey as they battle that dreadful cancer. And Aunt Michele with her health problems. There seems to be so much illness in the family. It seems this New Year will be one of great sadness or great miracles. Let's pray for the miracles. Also, Tyler emailed me that his sweet little "Pussy Sue", the cat he's had for 18 years has crossed over Rainbow Bridge. I just bet you were there to bring her over to Heaven's Pet Place. (sigh). I think of you every day Dan.  Keep the signs coming.  p> Love you forever - Mommy

I read some more about Danny tonight too. May God bless you so much. I share in your pain. It's so hurtful to bury a child. I find myself awake many nights still , just searching for other mothers and reading about other children that are in Heaven. You have created a wonderful site for Danny. He would be very proud of all his family members. God bless you.

Stopping by to wish you and your family a Blessed and Happy New Year.

Remembering our Angels always,

Merry Christmas, Danny.  I know you are enjoying a peaceful celebration in Heaven.  Be sure to be with us tomorrow when we gather as a family at mom and dad's.  Know that we miss you always and that you are  never forgotten.

Much love,
Tammy, Austin, and Ricochet

Danny,   missing you and thinking so much about you especially this time of the year.  It's still so hard to think about your final few months here on earth.  I try to stay focused on your spiritual life, happy in Heaven, with no pain....only joy.

Grandma Grabley, Aunt Belinda, and Aunt Tracy are all ill.  They sure could use some comfort from above, so do what you can to let them know you're close by.  

Some great news....Tammy was accepted for a new teaching position at Jefferson... 8th grade English. Right up her ally. She loves Rev. Brown and her class BUT a door has finally opened up to her in the public school system and I believe she will be very happy there. I know you must be so proud of her as we all are.

Roger & Laura are due home tomorrow from their honeymoon in Egypt. When he called he said they are having a wonderful time. Can't wait to hear all about it. They must miss baby Leah something awful.

I love you Danny......Mom

Hey Danny.... i LOVE looking at your website and seeing your photos.... and I had the honor of visiting the home you grew up in and lived in and was loved in and died in,   It was so special to see your room and your bed.  You have the most wonderful family that I KNOW loves you very, very much. 

Thanks so much for being Luke's friend in heaven and for being there when he crossed over.  Thanks also for getting us moms together.... We know it was heaven sent. 

I'm sure you have so much to be thankful for in heaven and I bet you and Luke had a wonderful day. 

Your brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews are absolutely WONDERFUL and have touched my heart in a beautiful way. 

Take care my friend.  Give Luke a hug for me.  See you boys soon. 


Christine, Luke's Mom

I have spent the last hour reading your wonderful tribute to your son Danny.  I know your sorrow so well as my 16 year old Kyle was killed in an AA in 1986.  What a nice boy Danny is.  Missing him has to be horrific.  Keep your family close and lean on them when necessary.


11-20-2008 9:55 PM -- By: Aunt Evelyn,  From:  

Hi Dan,

I haven't written for a while but I have thought of you--especially during family events.

As you know, the most recent was Roger-Lee and Laura's GREAT wedding!  You would have had a WONDERFUL time along with everyone else.  It was the best weekend I've had in years!  The priest mentioned you during the ceremony and R-L & Laura sent a tribute in your name to hospice.  You were remembered by all.

Also this fall was Tammy's 40th b'day!  It's hard to believe!  I still remember the pix of the 2 of you waiting for Santa.  She went to AC for her b'day.  In glad she did somethig fun.  She works hard.  Not just teaching and working at her parttime job, but raising Austin too.  She talked about you alot.  I know she misses you b/c you were both so close.

Eric and Tara have been having their struggles.  I hope you can keep a watch over them and help them out.  I know they could use it and would appreciate it.

Your Mom can ALWAYS use your help.  She always tries to help others but now that the weddiing is over, I hope she concentrates on herself.  Hope she gets a handle on her "stuff" next.  I think it would help her focus on the other, more important, parts of her life.  She & Roger aren't getting any younger.  I wish they could enjoy life more.

Aunt Val now has 2 granddaughters to worry about.  Always something. 

Now the holidays are coming.  Thanksgiving is next week.  Despite the challenges, we all have much to be thankful for--especially our GREAT family.

Wish you were here to join us in more than spirit.  Keep close!  (Especially with your Mom!)

Love always,

Aunt Evelyn

Oh Danny ~ I know you were with all of us and Roger Lee & Laura's wedding.  It was magical.  A day I will never forget.  How I wish you were there, not only in spirit, but physically.  Remember how you & I used to always dance to "Bugle boy of Co. 3 " at weddings?  Memories !!!

So the wedding was Saturday into Sunday.  We got home Sunday afternoon.  Then Monday,  Christine & Robin arrived and we've been enjoying their visit so much.  They will be leaving tomorrow although I wish they could extend their visit.  We're having such a good time.  Diane stopped by to meet them. Cousin Helene and Edward also came over and we all talked about Luke & Christian and you of course.  I wonder if you three boys were sitting on a cloud hanging out together Heaven, as your parents were remembering you all on earth. (sigh)  you are ALL SO MISSED.   All the kids and grandkids also came over and we had a little birthday party for "Luke".  We had dinner and a birthday cake with candles.  Only thing missing were you boys. Love, Mom

11-03-2008 2:27 PM -- By: Cousin Helene,  From:  

Hello Danny,

Wasn't Roger and Laura's wedding beautiful!  When your mom was dancing that special dance with your brother, Roger, I envisioned you with your arms around both of them - the three of you sharing the joy and your smile radiating love!

Love, Cousin Helene

Just wanted to comment on how beautiful this memorial is. Your son would be proud of you.

The memory of the just is blessed.    Proverbs 10:7

I have to congratulate you on your ministry of "momma" . Well done thou good and faithful servant.

God bless you with that peace that passes understanding and God's joy which is your strength.

Wow Danny,

It's been a long time since I visited this site, and your mom sure has been working hard on it.  It's just beautiful and such a wonderful tribute to you and your life.  It brought tears to my eyes, remembering all of the wonderful memories we all shared.  We all miss you and take comfort knowing that you are watching over all of us.   Love, Aunt Val

I am so sorry for the loss of your son. I pray the LORD and his truth will comfort you until you can see Danny again. You have created a beautiful memorial page.

Greetings from Iraq.  Thank you, Arlene, for inviting me to this website.   God bless.


09-18-2008 11:47 PM -- By: Mom,  From:  

Dan - today is your sister's 40th birthday !!!  Can you believe it?  Where have the years gone?  Please stay extra close to her and send her a special sign.

OH, speaking of signs......thanks for the GREAT one sent to Cousin Helene.  Hard to believe there's another Daniel Forrester in the world.  I hope  you will keep a watch over your "name sharer". Daniel  and his brother, Bob are both U.S. military, serving over in Bagdad. Do what you can do to keep them safe.

All the kids will be over Sunday for a little party for Tammy. We'll be waiting for you sign.  Make it a good one.

Miss you Dan,  you are SO alive in my mind and heart. I can still "hear" your voice . I treasure the many memories that remain vivid in my dreams.  Give Grandma Scholtz a hug from me.  I miss her so much too.  One day we sure will be having a grand ol' reunion in Heaven.  Can't wait.

Your forever Mom.  ( )  X XX

I think of you and your wonderful mom so often. And for some reason, you have been on my mind a lot lately. A piano brought your mom and I together, and I am so grateful for that. I love that piano and the music it creates, it has a very calming affect. As you know, your mom is remarkable, so continue to watch over her and give her strength.

09-17-2008 8:20 AM -- By: Ross ,  From: New York City  

You live forever in the hearts of those who loved you.

09-14-2008 3:42 AM -- By: Lizzy Dunning,  From: New Zealand  

I have not lost a child, I have lost a brother, father, best friend, first love.

To lose a child would surpass the pain of all of the above.


Soft Paths...may life be kind to you from this moment on.
