Honoring Little Danny Tritten


August 29, 2003 – October 16, 2008 - Daniel "Danny" "Dude" John Tritten, age 5, of Roscoe, IL, passed away on Thursday, October 16th, 2008, at Rockford Memorial Hospital in Rockford, IL.Danny was born in Riverside, CA, on August 29, 2003. Danny was the most amazing young man. He had a generous heart that was obvious to all who knew him. He made friends everywhere we went and was loved by everyone who met him.He is survived by his parents, Dan and Donnann Tritten; and sister (sissy), Madison Tritten of Roscoe, IL; many other family and friends. Balloon released at the time of his funeral mass from a friend in Mound, MN in honor of his love for the movie Cars.

Danny recently past away unexpectedly. Danny's Mom, Donnann, is a member of, the online scrapbooking message board where I am also a member. Despite the fact that many of us have never met in person we all still have an extremely close bond with one another. When one SS Sister hurts, we all feel the hurt with her.

In honor of the memory of little Danny many of us on the board have participated in red balloon releases, or are planning on releasing red balloons today and wearing red shirts in his memory as the family lays to rest their beautiful little boy today.

I was blessed to be able to join many of my SS Sisters this past weekend at a scrap retreat as we released red balloons to remember Danny. I will be keeping Donnann and her family in my thoughts today as I wear a red shirt in Danny's memory.

Donnann and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
