  • Danielle, your humor and smile was always a breath of fresh air…You’re the only one I know who would feel safer walking down Morton Street in Dorchester instead of running into some random forest animal in the middle of nowhere Connecticut on the way to Foxwoods haha…one of the last things you said to me and Aunty was how worried you were that Michaela and kaileigh missed that day of school, but don’t worry because they will be so loved and well taken care of and will grow up to be beautiful, strong women who understand the value of an education…I was so honored to have you by my side at my wedding…I love you so, so much and I will carry you and all the memories we shared forever…Also, your mom, my mom, Geena, and I apologize in advance for spoiling your girls rotten <3 Love, Beans
