We love you Dani!
Todd left a message on March 21, 2019:
A sophisticated young lady sharing in a love with an old soul to match her own. It is with a quiet, unassuming demeanor that you entered into our lives and brightened our home with your brilliant smile and sweet voice. There is a quiet sweetness about you that I am certain only angels have. I have enjoyed learning of the person you are, the person you’ve been and the beautiful spirit you will always remain in our hearts. Thank you, Danielle. Thank you for the beautiful love you have shared with each of us. Most of all, the sweet love you have shared with in Denny. I love the magic that you two have created, like an old couple captured in youthful love that endures throughout time. My heart yearns to know you more, but more than this, I am grateful to have known you at all. Thank you, Dani!
Abby left a message on March 21, 2019:
I first met Dani at a basketball game at west. There were people not being nice to me at all and she came up to me and asked if I was ok. She let me talk to her and let me tell her what was going on. She was an amazing listener. She would always tell me the truth like if I was making a stupid mistake she told me. After the basket ball game we got close. We didn’t have classes together anymore becuade I transferred to a different class. But Dani was still always there for me. I miss her so much ? she was and amazing,kind,loving person. I love you Dani fly high angel.
Jake Velasquez left a message on March 21, 2019:
I first meet Danielle from preschool lab. A class in highschool; that we both took. Me and Danielle where in the same preschool group. To break the awkwardness, due to us both being quite people. I told Danielle embarrassing stories that have had happen to me. As I continue to tell the stories, her laugh suprised me. Because her laugh was so pure and kind. It helped me realize how I knew danielle was an amazing person. Who didn’t seem to have one bad bone in her body. Love and miss you Danielle. I pray for your family❤️ -Jake Velasquez

Ed Brasfield left a message on March 19, 2019:
May you rest in piece sweet child. I didn't know Dani personally, she was my Great Nephews ( Dennis Marler's) girlfriend. He of course like all her family and friends are devastated and wondering WHY. God has his plan for all of us, and we cannot question it or even know when he will call our name. With all her years of being a cheerleader, just maybe our lord has two teams of angels playing some sort of game and he needs that wonderful smile of hers and enthusiasm. Or maybe if we look at it like this: Dani fulfilled in her short life all that God had asked her to do; And he was pleased and called her home. Bless you Danielle Ed Brasfield Spanaway, Wa

Greg Groeper left a message on March 18, 2019:
We did not know Dani personally. We are school friends of her grandmother Sheila. We are all so sad for your loss. No parent or grandparent should have to face losing their child or grand-kid before being called home themselves - we've had a few of these in our family and it breaks my heart to hear of the Samborski-Thomas-Class family's loss. Prayers and comfort from your Groeper family friends. We believe we'll all meet again. We can only hope that she served her purpose in God's eyes and after we grieve, look back and see what it was that she was meant to teach us, in His name. Amen.
Valerie Scacchitti left a message on March 18, 2019:
Dani was as beautiful inside as she was on the outside. There are no words to express the sadness I feel for her family and for her friends. Although she only lived 16 short years, she’s leaving a void that’ll never be filled. Godspeed dear child .....Rest In Peace .
Elizabeth Williams left a message on March 18, 2019:
Danielle, I remember when you were born. You have been loved and cherished by all from that day forward. Everytime I have seen you, you omit a beauty and rays of sunshine from within. Pure innocence, sweetness, kindness and joy! I know you will be perfect as an angel, for you already were one here on earth! ??

Tara Edmonds left a message on March 18, 2019:
Never in my life have I had a greater friend than Danielle. We met in 5th grade, and have been best friends ever since. She helped me through so much and no one will ever be able to make me laugh, smile, and be happy like she did. Words cannot describe the sorrow and pain I feel in my soul. I will love you forever and always, Danielle. RIP ❤️
