“Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped.  Then will the lame leap like a deer and the mute tongue shout for joy.”  So happy that Danny will now be able to see all the beautiful things in heaven and be able to run and jump into the arms of his beloved mother Kathi.
