Letter From Courney Daly, Daughter July, 9th, 2001

My family wanted to print a public thank-you on the HollisNY.com website for the lovely memorial service that was held in honor of my father.

We would like to thank everyone who participated and shared their thoughts of Donald R.- Daly Senior.  It was a touching tribute that certainly commemorated a life that has touched everyone he came into contact with.  When people question why someone had to die, maybe they should ask why they lived because a life truly is a gift filled with precious moments and learning experiences from which we grow and experience true love.

Sincere thanks,

The Daly Family
