  37. What a shock it was to learn of Danny’s untimely passing. I always thoroughly enjoyed my conversations with Danny at “Bev’s Place” in Stone Mountain. I agree with Bruce Herrig above that Danny was a GREAT American and truly a GREAT person also. He will be missed by all that loved and knew him. I am deeply sorry for your loss.

  38. It is a trite but true saying that only the good die young. Dan has been taken from this world entirely too soon and, as a result, our world will be a dimmer, less joyful place because of his absence. He was always quick to smile, to offer help, to be a friend, and to be a brother. I hope the entire Stallings family will be comforted in knowing those we love never truly leave us if we keep their memory alive in our thoughts. Dan’s spirit will live on because he was bigger than just one life. Like a pebble thrown into a pond, the ripples he created touched so many lives, he cannot be forgotten. Rest in peace, Danny. You will be greatly missed and our hearts are indeed heavy.
