  3. To those of Daniel’s Family…Oh how sorry I am to here this!!! I’ve been Daniel’s neighbor for nearly 20 years and all I can say is What a great person he was. Didn’t know about Daniels passing until today as I saw the Firemen with their engines on Hwy 59. I send my deepest condolences to his family and dearest friends. Such a super neighbor willing to help with any need and never ever asking for your help. He kept his eye on things at my home while I had my cancer treatments in Jax. Never have a ever met someone who you could put your complete faith and trust in. Our community will miss our dear friend and neighbor Daniel. I am so sad but Heaven has gained a true Christian soul.

    Dear Wayne,

    We were saddened to hear of the passing of your father and wanted you to know you and your family will be in our prayers. May the Lord comfort you during this very difficult time.

  10. Ertzberger Family, please except my sincere condolences on the passing of Mr. Daniel. He was my little league baseball coach, along with Mr. Gene Everson, back the 70’s, and not too long ago I saw him at a restaurant in Carnesville and was able to tell him how much I appreciated him taking time to be there for us kids playing ball. Again, my sympathy to your family.
