Messages from Daniel's Family

Bye bye Uncle Daniel!   Great Celebration of you!

With all my Love,
Grayson Daniel, XOXO

Charlie and Laurie Ann Schade:  You can both count on our Love, Prayers and Support xoxoxoxo

Kathy Ireland:  So adorable picture of Grayson Daniel saying his good-byes to his Uncle Daniel & was a great celebration of Daniel’s short life.  Many Thanks Maureen, you & Don are so strong in your faith to have gone through with but God has now given u both peace with closure & sending my blessings to the souls whom lead them to find Daniel.

Brandon Schade:  Sending a huge hug wish I was home to do it in person that's the hardest part being this far from my family.

Tiffany Schade:  Aunt Maureen, I can't even imagine you, Donny and Adam right now. I just want to hug you so tight. I know you probably have a million people messaging you, and sending their condolences, but I want you know that I have been thinking of you. I think it's so incredible for you and Donny to say that you found your son. You didn't give up you never lost hope, you were determined. There's no more questioning, no more guessing and no more wondering, finally we have closure. You are right Daniel wouldn't want us to be sad, but it's hard not to be. I'm so sorry Maureen, if there's anything I can do please do not hesitate to ask. This is all still such a shock to me, thinking is this actually real? Is this actually happening? Daniel will be missed by many. I love you aunt Maureen, you are such a strong person, and just remember we are all here for you. Xoxoxo

Mike Jansen:  Aunt Maureen, I don't really know what to say. I can't imagine the pain you, Uncle Don and Adam are feeling right now and I know i can't say anything to make it go away. Perhaps, at this point the pain is necessary and hopefully over time you can work through that pain to a place of peace. Daniel was special and I think what he left is a message of unrelentless questioning and searching, trying to find something more powerful, more fulfilling than the status quo. I wish I was closer to be able to provide more support but unfortunately at this time an ocean divides us. I think perhaps the strongest people are the ones who have endured the most heartbreak and you guys have shown that. Your strength has been inspiring and I look forward to the next time we can spend some time together.  Lots of love, Mike

Dolores Trask:  You and Donny are in my prayers as the family grieves with you in this very difficult time. God bless.

Lauren Elizabeth:  Hi Maureen, we are so sorry to hear the news about Danny. Hope you and Donny are doing alright. Let us know if there's anything we can do or if you need some babies to cheer you up. Take care. Xoxoxo. We are thinking of you guys. Xoxoxoxo 

Lana Trask-Kuch: Can't imagine the mixed emotions you must be feeling, love you all & our family is thinking of you & grieving with you!!!

Natalie Ward-Rhodes: You are a beautiful soul Maureen.  I wish I had known Daniel as an adult.  Just briefly as a baby and once at Michael and Leah’s house we sat by the fire and talked.  My heart aches for you and Don, and all you've been through and .I hope now as the healing continues , that you Donny, Adam, Kelly and Grayson get some peace. Love to you all. XO  Fantastic way to celebrate Daniel, and all he was about, loved seeing you and so many others. XO

Michael Trask: Hi Aunt Maureen. Just want to send our love me Leah and Lucas. Daniel will be missed. You Donny and Adam worked so hard for this.  Glad to have an answer but, sad to know the truth.

Nicole Trask:  I wasn't able to say hi to you at Daniels event on Sunday which made me really sad. It was a beautiful event and I feel so much more peace at mind knowing Daniel is in a safe place now  I love you so much and I'm so amazed by how strong and optimistic you and Uncle Don and Adam have been throughout all this. Daniel is so lucky to have such a caring and loving family. Your amazing Anut Maureen never change and never stop inspiring others the way you do!

Jessica Trask: Words cannot express the emotions that must be flooding through you right now. I am sharing some of them with you. Please pass my love to the rest of the family as well. I hope to see you soon. Danny was such a wonderful person. He is greatly missed and will never be forgotten. I love you and have you all and Daniel in my thoughts. Xoxo    Never forgotten xo  Happy birthday Danny, you are loved and missed dearly. Xoxo

Dear Danny:  You have been missed terribly and will never be forgotten. It's a bittersweet day today full of mixed emotions. All who knew you are better people from being around your upbeat and always positive personality. I am better having had you in my life and honoured to call you my cousin. Your little cousin Oakley will always be reminded about the truly wonderful man he shares his birthday with. I hope that you are happy and had found what you went looking for. We love you always xo  June 7, 2015

Barbara Steward-Schieck:  Donny and Maureen and family:  You have so many friends who are standing by you all. All I can say is that you were blessed with Daniel for a few years and you never gave up on him . We all love you and are praying for you , and we have been praying for you for a long time. It sounds like he died doing what he wanted to do and we all would like to do that. God bless you.

Marian Ferguson:  Donny, Maureen, Adam and Kelly, you are in our thoughts and prayers as you deal with the events of this week. Know that you are loved and can now bring some closure to the past 3-1/2 years. God bless you as you move forward. A wonderful tribute to Daniel yesterday, so proud of you both, love ya. 

Leanne Trask:  You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs to you.

Nancy Ingram:  Maureen and Don....I'm so sorry for your loss. I know that a small part of you could continue hoping (because I would be the same way) that Daniel would come back to you. Losing a loved one is never easy no matter when, and you guys have been feeling that pit in your stomach for so long now. You can lay your baby to rest now, I just wanted you to know that Scott and I are thinking of you and so sorry that the story ended this way. xoxo

Sandra Firth:  Sending our love.....

Barb Dellaire:  Very sorry for your loss.  Thinking of you. 

Betty Ann Cullen:  Hello Don & Maureen, My name is Betty Ann (Kennedy) Cullen, first cousin of Shirley..my Mom was Velma Kennedy, a sister of Hilton. I have been following your journey for the last couple of years and wanted you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Indeed, the whole Kennedy family are thinking of you (my brothers John & Jim). I'm sure you are at peace, knowing your son was in a place he loved..he sounds like he was an amazing young man. Take care Betty Ann

Glenn Zavitz:  You were so diligent and steadfast in the belief Daniel would be found.  Amazing to find him in the vastness of that wilderness.

Lynda Donahue: Maureen and Don, as part of our extended family, we share in your sadness.
(I gave Grayson an extra hug for you today, June 7, 2015) Cherish those special memories of Daniel. May they provide comfort for you and Kelly & Adam, at this difficult time. With love, Lynda & Ken
