When I joined FB about 2 years ago, Daniel was one of my first friends - we played Castle Age together :-) BUT I soon fell under his spell - he reminded me so much of my nephew who is the same age, and I introduced the two of them as well. Daniel and I chatted a few times, he told me about his passion for cricket, and we both still said wouldn't it be great if he could one day come and play in South Africa? I could then meet him in person. He went through a bad patch at one stage, and even though I had so many FB friends at that stage, I was glad when I saw he might need somebody to talk to - so I sent him my phone number, and he called me - it was around Christmas 2010. THEN - a few months ago, I thought I WONDER HOW DANIEL is doing? And went to his profile page. I saw the notice of his funeral, and first thought it was him joking! - How terrible that was - I thought it was his quirky sense of humour again. I was so horrified when I realized this beautiful young man, who to my mind was a Child of Nature had really passed away. I can only send my love to his family, and that I so often think of this wonderful young man - to mind comes the sweetness of the photo of him holding his bunny. With much love from Cape Town, South Africa - Daniel - you touched my heart and soul
I cant even describe all the memories I have with Daniel. They're ours. But he changed my life completely, for the better. He saved me, and I always hoped I would be the one that saved him. But I want to thank each and every one of his friends and family cause they they got him through difficult times and at least I got to meet himand be with him! But he should be here with us! There is not a single morning I wake up and not think we should be together or a night where we should be in each others arms. We were perfect, Daniel was perfect. He was amazingingly weird and and weirdly amazing! There has never been, or will ever be someone like Daniel. He was so special. In every way. The first time I saw him I knew he was so sweet and so lovely. I even told my mum I was in love with this boy at work, before I even spoke to him, because I knew how special he was, how perfect we were together. I will never forget the first time he spoke to me, nor any moment with him from then. He was the love of my life and will be forever. He struggled for a while but always knew that there was someone that cared about him. I will never forget Daniel, anything about him. His amazing sense of humour, his every expression, his love for cricket and music (even through lack of practise he was amazing at both, really anything he tried he was incredible at!!) In my wildest dreams I cant even imagine anyone like Daniel! I really hope people dont stop talking about him, cause I wont, He deserves the so much more. He deserves the world. I wish I could have given him the world, give him everything. Anything! My time with Daniel was the best in my life. He made me happy, and I know I made him happy too. So at least he was happy. Its never enough. A lifetime wouldnt be enough. I know he knew how much I love him, we told each other every night. I will always be his, and he is always mine. Forever.
