To the family of Danny Ray McPherson: My thoughts and prayers are with you. I remember visiting Danny and his family north of Lamar in younger years with my family. Aunt Alice was my father's youngest sister. Their home was happy and comforting, filled with five outgoing boys. Danny was always full of laughter and fun as we rode the donkey or horse or ended up being chased by their geese. Fond memories! God bless.
To the Family of Danny Ray McPherson:
I'm so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
To the Family of Danny Mcpherson,
Please accept my deepest and heartfelt sympathy.
I will always remember Danny for his sense of humour.
May God be with you during this difficult time.
We will always remember your skill with horses and your love for our parents - Richard and Evelyn. You were always there for them and were such a great neighbor and friend. We all wish your family the comfort of knowing you are watching over all of us now in a much better place and without pain or suffering.
