Danny's Memorial Fund

On September 11th, time stopped. Life flashed before my eyes as I was told of my husband's passing. And in a matter of moments, everything changed. My husband was taken too soon, and it doesn't feel fair. It doesn't feel right and it doesn't feel okay. I wasn't ready for him to go, and I know that there are hundreds of others who feel the same as I do. Hundreds of people whose lives Danny has touched over the years through his compassionate nature, his hardworking spirit, and the integrity he carried with him every day that he lived. People loved him. I loved him. And I feel blessed to have spent over 7 beautiful years with the love of my life. 

Danny was blessed with four beautiful children, Marley, Kaleigh, Rylee and Tyler. I think what filled my heart the most throughout our journey together was watching him with his kids. He worked tirelessly to provide for his family, and it was evident to all who knew him. In his honor and his memory, I am creating a memorial fund for his children. They lost their father last Tuesday, a void and emptiness that can never quite be filled. My hope is that through this fund, we can begin to fill their hearts with love and support, to bring light into their life during the darkest of times. My hope is that all who loved him can honor the spirit of Danny's character by contributing to his children and their future. All donations will be for his children.

Thank you,
Julie Funkhouser
