D.J.'s Favorite Quotes (from his Facebook page):

"Of all that money that ere I spent, I spent it in good company. Of all the harm that ere I did, at least it was to none but me. And since it falls unto my lot that I shall rise and you shall not, I'll gently rise and softly call good night and joy be with you all." - Irish toast

"What's a sundial in the shade?" - Ben Franklin

"Tomorrow's just your future yesterday" - Craig Ferguson

Contents of Site

This website consists of:

  • Get Busy Living - a blog by his family providing news, stories, thoughts, etc., especially regarding our activities and events in honor of D.J.
