SIGN OUR GUESTBOOK
Dan (Danny) was my childhood friend from grades 1 through 8 at St. Mary’s Catholic grade school . We were great friends and had terrific times at his house while “the sauce” simmered and at my house with my six siblings! My sister the eldest of us and also a St Mary’s alum sent me the link. My sincerest prayers to his family and friends. I will always cherish a terrific childhood with Dan and my alter boy days. Daniel helped me pray more deeply and invoke the love of Mary our Heavenly Mother. Michael Kline
This is my beloved uncle. He was the greatest man I have ever known. My children adore him and he was my son’s best friend in the entire word. We are beyond devastated by his loss and words cannot express the sorrow we feel. He was the kindest and most gentle man. He gave us wonderful memories that we will cherish forever. He will never be forgotten. He was a very religious man, so I know he is an angel in heaven and will be watching over us always. I love him and miss him more than anyone will ever know.

Danny has always been one of my very favorite people. He was the nicest person with the best sense of humor. I can actually hear his contagious laughter. He was all about his family and his church. Many of us know Dan from St. Mary’s and he and his family name Cellini, will always be remembered as valuable part of the cornerstone of St. Mary’s. You all have my deepest sympathy. Danny is truly going to be sorely missed. I along with many of his other friends, simply cannot believe he is gone. Prayers and sincere sympathy, Lyn
My deepest sympathy. God bless...

With love and prayers,
