Before the sun kissed the horizon to bring joy in the morning, a beautiful soul entered Heaven. One last sigh to the moon and peace comforted as a blessing in the Lord. Dani’s presence of love transcends earthly limitations to those who hold her precious memories. Danielle was enlightened by a true love of a lifetime, ‘ever-after’ in Bradley, and her miracle sons Clayton and Charlie. She provides eternal loyalty to not only friends and family, but to the least of those who do not have their own voice. Her spirit stays free and forgiving, nurturing and compassionate. The greatest of all these is God’s love. Each time the warm breeze embraces us, we will remember and our souls will smile as one.
A Celebration of Life service will be at 5 PM Saturday, September 24, 2011 at the Mullinax Funeral Home, Butler (660) 679-0009. Memorial contributions in memory of Danielle may be made in lieu of flowers to her children’s educational fund, and may be left in care of the funeral home.
