Psalms 18:2 — The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Danny, though the success as a Saint on the field was not to be enjoyed - your valiant, brave, and faithful effort is remembered and appreciated and so, we are with you and you in our prayers...
