Funeral Services for Danny Giannotto

It is with a heavy heart that i am announcing the unexpected death of Danny (Donato) Giannotto.  Danny died on Monday November 9th.  For those of you that knew him, you knew that he was a great man with a great big heart.  He was willing to do whatever anyone needed at any time.   

If you knew Danny , you would have know that he had Auto-Brewery Syndrome (ABS) as well as diabetes.   Danny was in and out of the hospital many many times since 2015 for treatments and diagnosis due to the complications of ABS.  These trips to the hospital were not cheap. 

Danny had also lost his job last year making their financial situation even more of a struggle to stay afloat.  Danny was not insurable because of his diabetes, therefore, he did not qualify for a Life Insurance policy to cover expenses if something like this ever happened.

At this time we are unsure the reason for his untimely death.  We do know it was sudden, and certainly unexpected.  Danny was feeling very well and was on the path of health, and his life was back to normal.  His wife Michelle spent all day with Danny on Sunday shopping, having lunch before he went Upstate NY.  She spoke to Danny on Monday morning over the phone to check in.  It was a regular weekend for them, laughing and enjoying their life together.

I would like to ask you for a little  help for Funeral expenses that were not planned.  Anything is greatly appreciated.
