I am a Smith student who was randomly peering through an archived yearbook from 1995 ó I saw Danielleís picture, and thought to google her for reasons I truly canít explain. I came across this page, and was so touched by the love you all had for her. I want you to know that her memory is alive, even in those who did not know her personally. Perhaps thereís a reason I was drawn to find this page ó I hope in some way, this brings somebody peace and assurance that her memory lives on in many ways. <3

The music that you had requested was played and a lot of your friends danced. Everyone shared wonderful stories of your adventures. You packed a lot of amazing adventures into your all to short life.

20 years ago at 5:30 AM (California time) Danielle Anne after a courageous fight lost her battle with brain cancer. That day the world lost one of it's brightest stars⭐️. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of her. Danielle is rembered and missed by her family and all of her friends. I believe that somehow she is watching over all of us and protesting what is happening in this country at this time. Danielle you really were a super star 🌟 that shined so bright. I will always love you to the moon🌙 and back. Mom

I was rembering how you would always call me around midnight on New Years Eve. I would give anything just to hear your sweet voice again. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. Love you forever.

At 5:30 A.M. 18 years ago in her room at the Zen Hospice in San Francisco Danielle lost her battle with brain cancer. It is so hard for me to believe that it is 18 years already. Most days I think that she is still in San Francisco working, leading protests to make our country a better place and finding friends wherever she goes. I do miss talking to her and getting her perspective on world affairs. Danielle was always a force for good. I know that everyone who knew her still holds her in their hearts. Danielle, I have always loved you to to the moon and back. I miss you more than I can express. A red robbin came for a visit this morning.I think that Danielle sent it to me as a sign that she is still around. ❤️

Thanksgiving, 2019 and you are missed as much as ever. I keep remembering all of the Thanksgivings that you named the turkey and how much joy you added to the holiday with your wit. Thanksgiving has not been the same since you left us. We all miss you and love you. Your spirit lives on.

Danielle's birthday is today, she would have been 46. I will always remember the first time I saw her, what a beautiful baby. Danielle grew up to be a beautiful woman inside and outside. She is remembered with love by everyone she ever encountered and some who only know off her. She really was a superstar who left us way to early. HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY SWEET CHILD. 🎂 Love you to the moon and back forever. 💕

Happy Birthday! I just stepped into a room where music was playing and it was a modern day version of Landslide. My knees buckled. I still hear you. In music. In the trees. In everything beautiful. Love, Claire

Seventeen years ago in San Francisco at 5:30 A.M. just 4 days before her 29th birthday Danielle died. She had fought a brain tumor for 21 months with grace and lots of humor. She was one of the most amazing people that I have known and she was my youngest child. Danielle is loved, remembered and missed by everyone she ever came in contact with. There is not a day that goes by when I don't think about her.
I will always love her to the moon and back.

Danielle you were with Michael when he was inducted to the American Bar Association Board of Governors.
Michael wrote this following his being inducted: I usually don't post professional stuff on FB, but I wanted to share this news because it's an honor to serve on the Board and because when I was nominated yesterday something extraordinary happened.Nominees for the ABA Board of Governors are, by tradition, announced before the entire ABA House of Delegates and then walked down the aisle of the House and into the "Well of the House" by members of the nominee's home state delegation and other friends in the House. Just prior to having my name read, I was approached by another member of the House, an attorney from Seattle named Maureen Mitchell. She introduced herself to me and asked if I was Danielle's brother. I told her that I was and she proceeded to tell me that she had gone to Smith and played rugby with my late sister. It was apparent that Maureen had been close to Danielle as she started to tear up a bit and then so did I. We embraced and I asked her to "walk with me" into the Well of the House which made the happy event an unforgettable one.
Danielle as I have always said that with you it is not six degrees but 2 degrees of separation. You are remembered and loved by everyone you ever came in contact with.

I am remembering Labor Day's from the past. You were about three years old and wearing a life jacket when you jumped off the low diving board into the pool at Fiddelman's Resort. You loved being in the pool. When you got older you gave up the life jacket and graduated to diving off the high board. Miss you so much.

On June 16, 2002, at around 5 AM in San Francisco, California the world lost one of its brightest stars. Danielle left behind family and friends who carry on her spirit. She was an amazing person who had more love and compassion than anyone I know and she shared that love with everyone she met. If you were a friend of hers you were a friend for life. She never forgot anyone and I believe no one whose life she touched has forgotten her. I will always be proud to have been her mother and will love her to the moon and back forever.
