    One of my fondest memories I have is the summer of 1976 when my sister Vickie and I stayed at our grandmother's house across the street from Daniel's place, Daniel and his family hosted a big bash with music, highland games, with family & friends. I wish the family could get together more often like that. My condolences to Daniel's family and friends. Julie Brittain Goodwin Goodyear, AZ
