Very sorry to learn of Daniels passing. I lived across the street from him 6th through 12th grades and recall playing toy cars, cowboys and sports together as kids. He was in my wedding, but we went different ways after HS and we lost contact over the years. He was a good friend growing up. We pray for strength and loving memories for his family during this difficult time.

I'm sorry to hear of Mr. Shelton's passing. He was a regular customer at the store where I work and he was always very kind. I have one of his Tin Men and will always treasure it. My deepest sympathies to the family.
