I have known your family forever. I have memories of me, Rachelle, you and Danny playing in my backyard in Eaton; in the sandbox, on the swings, running in the woods. I feel like there has never been a time that I didn’t know your family. We all went to Pine Tree together and then Kennett. I know I haven’t seen you or Danny in quite a few years but as silly as it sounds I have always been able to feel connected to your family through facebook. Most of my memories are with you. I think fondly of our Wendy’s dates before National Honor Society. You were always willing to gossip with me about Chuck and you may not have known it but you always made me feel comfortable going to National Honor Society meetings (since I don’t think the other members liked me much and I didn’t really fit in there). I know that if Danny is anything like you were back then (and I’m sure still are), he is a pretty great guy. I have kept Danny and your family in my prayers since I heard. I commend you and your friends for having the strength to share updates with all of us who are patiently waiting for the words…”He’s awake and he’s great”. I have attached a very old picture. I think it is from our 5th grade so like 1993 or 1995. I think you it was you who gave me this picture. I remember having two thoughts: 1st ” I am sooo cool that I have a picture of the Pine Tree boys” and 2nd: ” I wonder what boys do when they have sleepovers”. Sorry if it embarrasses you because you all look so young. But if you ever want to be really embarrassed I have some great pictures of you and I circa 1987 or 1988. Sending all my positive energy, love and strength through this message to Danny, you, you whole family and all your friends there with you.
XOXO, Nina Trapasso
