  10. Linda and family: We are so sorry to hear of Dannie’s death. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Dannie is with the Lord and family members that have gone on before. I will forever remember Landra’s wedding and the fun time we spent in North Wilkesboro. I think of that time a lot. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.

  11. Brian and family. I am so sorry for your loss. I really enjoyed the time we all spent together fishing years ago on our little tournament trail. Getting to know your dad was a real pleasure. He was always the kind of man you wanted to be around.
