Laurelglen Bible Church

On March 20th, following the private gravesite service at Hillcrest Memorial Cemetery, a wonderful public memorial service was held at Laurelglen Bible Church in Bakersfield, with Pastor Roger Poppen officiating. Jon expressed thanks to a long list of important people and offered his tribute to "Sir Dan." Tributes were also offered by Danny's Aunt Diane, for herself and for Danny's dad, Michael, and several kids from Danny's high school spoke about him, as well. The most poignant part of the service was a video that included over 100 pictures of Danny and his family, accompanied by a series of moving contemporary Christian songs. Our friends, Claudia True and Emily Falke set up an awesome display of mementoes from Danny's life in the foyer of the church. About 600 people attended. It was a profoundly bittersweet experience.

The pictures that were in the video are in the website section called "The Journey." The following documents are in this section: the obituary; the service program; the expression of thanks and the comments delivered by Jon. While these sentiments are nice, they don't come close to capturing what we all thought and felt that day, and since.

Total Pictures:  20
