  1. I will always remember and be grateful to Dan for the opportunities he gave me. My condolences go out to the whole Alvey family.

  2. I only knew Danny in school, (especially from band), but he was a nice guy who did me a solid favor back then, and I am very sorry to hear of his passing. Best wishes to his family. R.I.P.

  3. Amber,

    I was shocked to get the news from Gene of your dad’s passing.
    My deepest condolences to you and your whole family.
