    Cherokee Prayer Blessing

    May the Warm Winds of Heaven
    Blow softly upon your house.
    May the Great Spirit
    Bless all who enter there.
    May your Mocassins
    Make happy tracks
    in many snows,
    and may the Rainbow
    Always touch your shoulder.

  19. Darrell Hardie says:

    It was a great pleasure working with Danny at DGS. His work ethic was second to none and his sense of humor made him a joy to work with while we performed a difficult task on the job. He always had IT!! New Laptop, IPad all the way down to a cold drink of water after a 3 hour meeting. I still look at his desk each morning I arrive to work and think of him and smile. God called him home because his and his work here on earth was done. Rest in Peace, my friend.

  20. Corey Morgan says:

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of my friend Danny Bohnlein. We shared many late nights in the office and he will be greatly missed. RIP my friend.

  21. Hares Sayed says:

    He indeed was my little brother. He used to sit on my left side. I always encouraged him on two things: his health and going back to school. He promised that he will, but now he is gone. After the surgery he came to me, sat and was asking about my kids and cats. He also told me that he had a successful surgery and was living with his Mom. I was pleased to hear about surgery without any complication. But on Wednesday afternoon when I heard about his death it really shook me from my core – death of a good young friend and coworker. I pray for the salvage of his departed soul and asking the Almighty to put him the Heaven. Our thoughts and prayers for his loved ones he left behind.

  22. Stephen Campbell says:

    My heartfelt condolences to Danny’s father, mother, family and friends. Danny’s a good person, a great heart, a great project manager, a good soul. He always led with his values, his humor, his willingness to do whatever was necessary to make the best thing happen. The picture’s a good one, because it show the smile, the twinkle in his eye and that tidbit of shy mischievousness in him. Whenever I think of Danny, I think of the best, always striving for the better, the fun, the job well done.

  23. Diane Wooden says:

    My heart goes out to the family during this difficult time. I had the pleasure of working with Danny on several projects while at DGS. One special project was the presidential inaugural viewing stands for President Obama. Danny was such a kind and gentle person and I share in your sorrow with love and friendship.

  24. Chiquita says:

    He will be missed.

  25. Shareeza Peterson says:

    My thoughts and prayers to the family.

  26. Alyssa Turner says:

    So shocked and saddened to learn of Danny’s sudden passing. As the former Manager of the Wilson Building, I developed a friendship with Danny and enjoyed his dedication and work ethic when he served as PM for the Inaugural Viewing Stands…we shared many laughs and brainstorming talks deciding how to handle the “sensitive issues :-).” Danny was a great guy, kind, and caring and loved and spoke of his family so fondly. He was an absolute joy to work with… a calm and positive spirit… truly one of my fav’s in the Construction Division. He will be sorely missed. My prayers to the family during this difficult time and may his memory live on with you for an eternity.

  27. Mindy says:

    Hey cuz. Really gonna miss ya. I will play some Atari for ya!!! Until we meet again. Luv ya

  28. Greg & Liz Weinheimer says:

    We are so very sorry for this unimaginable loss. Our thoughts, prayers and love are with you all.

  29. Sabrina Williams says:

    We are sending out prayers of support and love. Truly a blessing and pleasure to have meet him while working on projects at the DC Department of Energy and Environment. Danny would always make me smile. I’m grateful to experience a small part of his life.

  30. Sarah Williams says:

    Danny has been a great friend to me over the years since high school. Know that he was loved by many and will be missed by even more. My prayers are with the family at this time.

  31. Lanre Akinsemoyin says:

    As a fellow DGS employee, I didn’t know Danny very well, but I have ran into him numerous times at the Reeves Center, whether around the office or on the elevator. And whenever I said hello to him, his responses were always friendly and pleasant. My impression of him each time I saw him was of a hardworking professional who loved his job and was in control of whatever project he was working on. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

  32. Tony Goodman says:

    I was so shocked and saddened to hear that Danny has passed. For over three years, we had desks facing each other at DGS and would talk about our projects, Michigan football, his plans to move into DC, and more. He was such a wonderful person – hard working, funny, kind, and absolutely dedicated to the successful completion of his projects. Even after I left DGS we would continue to talk and had plans to meet up after his surgery. His last message to me was about his surgery only a few weeks ago, and that he was “Gonna finally do something for me” after so many other selfless acts for others. I hope that his final days were happy, and that his family and friends can continue to cherish the memories he has left behind.

  33. Natarajan Satish says:

    I am heartbroken on hearing about Danny’s passing. I worked with Danny on two projects for DGS. I took an instant liking to him, and knowing his kind and gentle nature, I am certain that this must have been the same experience for all those who had the privilege of knowing him. I remember him telling me about going in for surgery about a couple of months ago, and the occasion is still fresh in my mind as if we’re yesterday.

    My prayers and thoughts are with the family during this time of grief. May his soul rest in everlasting peace in the home of God.

  34. Perry Finney says:

    One of the nicest guys I ever meet.

  35. Michelle Dee says:

    My deepest condolences to the family during this difficult time. I had the pleasure of working with Danny on the redesign for the Department of Energy and Environment. He was a kind soul with a great sense of humor. His dedication to his work was second to none– he would email after work hours to respond to construction/design questions and helped troubleshoot any and all issues that came our way. His smile was infectious and I couldn’t help but smile everytime he visited our office. I am thankful to have had the chance to know Danny as a friend and colleague. He will be dearly missed.

  36. Sylvia Cole Petway says:

    So sorry to learn of Danny’s passing. I didn’t know him well. But, met him a couple of time as a youngster. My late husband Jerry Jones spoke of him often. He worked with and was close to Danny’s Mother Al and Step-Father Mike as Jerry called them.

  37. Jean Mitchell says:

    Danny, it was truly a pleasure being able to call you co-worker and most of all friend. I will miss you, your visits to DOEE, our conversations and sharing cat pics. I want to thank you for helping me along the way when decided to become a pet parent.

    Rest well my Friend

  38. DeArrin Mickles says:

    I had the pleasure of working with Dan when I arrived at the Department of General Services in 2012. Never had an unkind word and always had a joke or two. He will be missed!! RIP Dan

    To his family please accept my sympathy for your loss.

  41. Kim and Greg Garcia says:

  43. Lori says:

    To the guy I knew from twitter who turned out to be one of the nicest people you’d ever want to meet: thank you Danny for always checking on me, tweeting pics of Milo, and generally being an amazing friend. A bunch of us are shocked and saddened at your passing and we will all miss your snark, even if you didn’t know you did it. We love you!

  44. Wright says:

    I knew him from twitter. He trolled and made people feel uncomfortable. Would make Jeremy go crazy and send Sara inappropriate comments. Funny stuff.

    Rest in peace Boney

  46. Kim and Greg Garcia says:

    Wishing we knew the right words to say at this time. Danny was always such a friendly person to our family and we always enjoyed talking to and catching up with him when we were home for visits. We wish now that we had had the opportunity to do it more often. Our hearts go out to you Allison and Mike. Sending our love and wishing we could be there for the services.

  47. Kory Miller says:

    Danny was a very good project manager and an even better friend. Over the years, we worked (and argued) over various projects including two Presidential Inaugurations. We sparred over fantasy football and even pulled off a few trades. I am truly saddened and will miss our times together. RIP.
