In Memory Of ...

Daniel Jason Comeaux
4 February 1971 - 29 May 2000

Danny was our caboose...the fifth of five children. When he was six years old, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor...a craniophryngioma.

Two days after surgery, Danny suffered severe complications and lapsed into a coma, where he would remain for the next 6 weeks. During that time, Danny had to return to surgery twice due to spinal fluid build up...the last time to implant a shunt in the left ventricle of his brain, in order to help his spinal fluid recirculate. While in the coma, he suffered a stroke on the left side of his brain, which left Danny both physically and mentally disabled.

For the next 23 years, Danny was in and out of hospitals with various illnesses. As the years passed, his health grew steadily worse until in February of 2000, Danny was admitted to the hospital with cellulitis of the leg. During routine blood work, it was discovered that Danny had blood poisoning. Further tests revealed that he had a cyst in his abdomen that was blocking the tubing of his shunt. He underwent the first of what would turn out to be eight surgeries. Unfortunately, Danny did not improve but instead, only grew weaker and weaker. Finally, on May 29, 2000 our "Special" Angel went home to God...the infection had reached his brain.

He left behind a rich legacy of unconditional love. Danny never made a mark in this world academically or scientifically but nevertheless, he will never be forgotten. Wherever Danny went, he gave out red crayon hearts with the only words that he could write..."I love you, Danny." He gave them as freely as he gave his love and friendship. In his short life, he touched many hearts and melted even more. His spirit will live on forever.

Forever Precious, Forever Young, Forever Missed.

Loving You Always,
