Papa Daniel's character was sterling; the best of all men of all ages. His family loved and revered him. Heaven is richer with his presence among God's Holy Army of Saints! Papa Daniel's love and devotion to God, his family, the United States of America, his countrymen, and friends was and is unsurpassed. E.H. Lepiarczyk II
