Hi, my name is James McCabe. I am 19 years old and live in Nashua NH. Daniel McCabe is my cousin. I came across this forum while searching for more info on my cousin's tragic death. Our family is of course very shocked by Daniel's actions and are devastated to lose him, especially at such a young age in life. I myself have taken this news very badly as I'm sure many of his classmates and friends have as well. Those who never knew Danny very well I must say are unfortunate. He was truly a beautiful person and a great guy to be around. His happiness radiated to those around him and was always there to make people smile when they were down. I could never say a bad thing about him and those who knew him will indeed agree he didn't have a bad bone in his body. He would never hurt anybody intentionally and should the occassion ever have presented itself, he would have been the first person to apologize. He was a stand up guy. That was Danny. He was a great person, and that's how we all will remember him. I sincerely hope that wherever he is he is in a better place. What happened was far more devastating to our family than I could ever explain. I would just like to send my deepest sympathies to my aunt and uncle and my cousin. I love you all dearly. In closing, I would just like to say that Danny was a great person and a great man. Nothing will ever change that. I love you Danny. Take Care.

Get rid of the psychotropic drugs and the BS of the mental health and counseling industry and save lives.

Just saw his name in the Knox Trail Council Newsletter, I can't believe an 18 year old would do this and he was even an Eagle Scout! Anyone got a nice pic of him they could somehow post here?
