A special thank you to the New York GAA and NaFianna for having a Guard of Honor at the Church, it was a beautiful tribute to his life.

And thank you to Margaret Purcell Roddy and team, for making it possible to share Danny's Funeral Mass and prayers at the cemetery with those unable to be with us. Our thanks go to those who have supported us during this sad time by calling to the home, Mass cards, letters, vestments, chalices, flowers and food.

Your generosity has been overwhelming.

We would also like to thank all the Doctors, nurses and staff at MSKCC for all their care and support the past few years.

The donations to the Irish Volunteers for The Homeless at the Aisling Irish Community Center has been greatly appreciated, helping others was a passion of Danny’s.

We are so grateful to friends, family and the entire community that thought of us during this time, whatever you did to console our hearts, we thank you so much whatever the part. 

In the words of Danny, “It’s Nice to be Nice”
