There are so many memories about Daniel that make me smile but one does stand out. When he came to IML he must have brought an extra suitcase filled with just chocolate. He would sit in the lobby with a satchel next to him filled with the sweet morsels and when certain individuals would see him, they would scurry to greet him, there would be cheek kisses, three of them, and then out came a small box of Belgium gold. He would be so happy and so would his recipients, I teased and called him “the candy man,” I too was always grateful for my gift of delicious chocolates. Daniel knew that my Paul only likes dark chocolates and he would have a box just for him. His thoughtfulness was undeniable and the look on both faces with each exchange was pure joy and uniquely Daniel.
