    My family lived next door to Danny O’Brien when I was growing up, people called him the ‘Mayor of Holcomb St.’ I have many fond memories of him being very involved in our neighborhood when I was a child. My sympathies to your family for your loss.

    It’s been about a month since lovely Danny passed. I had the great fortune of meeting him and your wonderful family when Danny was at Strong. He was a man whose heart was wide open, he was so witty and selfless even in the face of sickness, and his love for his family was so evident and boundless. I know your loss is profound. He was and you all are beautiful souls, and our team on 4-3600 will hold Danny in our memories. Lyove, Andrea (care coordinator)
