Danny Thomas, Humanitarian
“O Danny Boy--we miss you so,” as in the Irish ballad!
The beloved Danny Thomas is gone, but never to be forgotten.
In a world so desperately in need of laughter, Danny was one of the noblest kings of comedy, mirth and laughter. His storytelling genius lifted up our sometimes heavy hearts.
As a Catholic priest friend sworn to secrecy by Danny, I wish I could tell of a long list of his private, unpublicized charities!
The Bible says: “Do your good in secret--and God who sees in secret will reward you.”
A heavenly “mansion” was certainly ready for our Danny!
