    I met Dani less than a year ago when my husband Chris & I moved back to Greenville – he grew up here & knew Dani from school. We went to dinner at Turk Lake and Dani was our waitress! She was so friendly & nice & gave me her phone number so we could hang out with our kids sometime. Sadly, we never got the chance. She & her daughter did make it to my son’s 1st birthday party for a short time – Dani was so generous! She brought food & a gift for my son as well as for me! What a thoughtful & lovely person. I truly wish we could have spent more time together & that I could have gotten to know her much much better. My thoughts & love go out to her family.

    We cannot put into words how we are feeling for the loss of our cousin Danielle. We sometimes don’t understand why things happen the way they do.

My prayers are with both Jadan and Ava. May God bless you both in the years to come and know your momma loved you with all her heart, and worked to provide the best for both of you!

    We are grieving with you with the sudden and tragic loss of such a sweet girl. We saw Dani just two weeks ago at Drakes and she seemed so happy. We are grateful for the time we spent chatting. Dani always seemed so happy in public. I sure pray that as she looks down on her family, they feel her spirit all around. She truly was and is an angel. My love to you all. Please let us know if there is anything you need. Hugs!!

    Dani and I became good friends in the 8th grade. We continued to be friends over the years keeping in contact mostly through texting, phone calls, and fb. Dani was truly a beautiful person. I will never forget her smile, laugh,and out going personality. It was a blessing to have her play such a large role in my life while we attended school together. No one can take our memories away and I will cherish them forever. I love you girl r.i.p and god bless your babies and family.

    We really enjoyed having Dani be our son, Isaac’s, soccer coach and we got to know how sweet she was with each of the kids, including her own. I have grown up knowing her sister Melissa since elementary and I feel so very bad by the whole thing! I have seen on facebook how important family was to Dani. I also see in her pins on pinterest her dreams and ideas she had for her children and self. I am sad those dreams will never become reality for herself. My prayers for you are that somehow you can find comfort and peace in this tragedy. May you find the rich power, love and strength in the only way possible, in God Himself. I also pray that Ava and Jaden will always remember how much their mama loved them. With love, Nathan, Kim, Heidi and Isaac

    Oh Dani. What to say. I’m still so numb about what’s happened to you. We didn’t talk much over the last years until recently but you have always held a good place in my heart. We will all miss you and am somewhat comforted by the fact that you are in God’s hands and will be the angel watching over your children and family.
