Extending our deepest sympathy to you and your family during this difficult time. No amount of words can express the pain that you are going through. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I first met Daniel nearly eight years ago. The first thing about Daniel that struck me was his smile. It was not just a smile of joy, but also one of eagerness. A smile of calm and collected energy. A smile that he wore in all our times together. A smile that made the world a better, brighter place. I write these words with a heavy heart knowing Daniel and his smile are no longer with us. His passing fills my family and I with profound grief, and we would like to extend our condolences to his family. His smile and the joy he brought to this world will be deeply missed.
We are so sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with you and your family.
We can’t imagine how difficult this is for you and we are so sorry for your loss.
