My brother Danny died in his sleep this afternoon at 2:30 from the effects of cancer of the throat, brain and chest. He was 59. He leaves behind two severely Autistic adult children, Sean and Kathleen. Dan served in the United States Army for 27 years and at age 49 did one tour in Afghanistan.He was my oldest friend, we were brothers. We fought, we laughed, we overlooked and we moved along but we were always there for each other. I loved him very much and my world is a much smaller place now.
