    I’m so sorry to hear about Danelle. I attended 7th grade in Gretna where I met Danelle. We lost touch as I lived in Gretna only 1 year before moving back to Omaha. Obviously, she left an impression as I still remember her today. My condolences to all of her family and friends that have lost her in their life. In my memory she was a great friend and a special person.
