    My sympathy to Danny’s family.I was Danny (and Ricky’s) teacher when they went to Sisseton High School. I still think of them often with a smile as they were always up to something (fun)and had each other’s backs. They were so funny together. May God bless him and his family and help you through this difficult time.~ Miss Pederson
