I had the great pleasure of working with both Mr. Danford and Mrs. Dorothy. Mr. Danford was a great educator and person. He loved the Lord, his family, and his community. My deepest sympathy to your family. May you find comfort and peace in the days to come.

Mr. Dial was my teacher during his very first year in the classroom. When I retired after teaching 35 years myself, I gave him a call. We had a long conversation and laughed together. Please take solace in the fact that his memory will live on for many years. Blessings to his family.
