I am VERY proud to say that I knew Danny Pence. Him and his family lived down the road from mine. We grew up together. Him and my brother were are actually really good friends.

I was only 13 when he was murdered and I took his death really hard. (I know a lot of us did) I remember the week before he died he drove past my house (delivering for Philly's) and he stopped by to talk. He told me he was so happy that I was finally starting high school and he told me that if I ever needed him to let him know. I never imagined that it would be the last time I'd ever get to talk to him.

The day I found out was actually my first day of school. It was supposed to be his first day of his Senior year and my Freshmen year. I woke up nervous but ready to go. My mom came into my room and told me that Danny was dead. I didn't believe her and continued to get ready. I walked into the living room and the local news was on. As soon as I looked at the screen it had a picture of him and the only thing I remember hearing was "Laney High School honor student Murdered". I felt like I was in another world. Kinda how you really get into movies and feel the characters emotions but you know it's not real. He had been dead for 24 hours and my family was too afraid to tell me but knew they had to tell me before I found out at school.

It's been almost 12 years since he was taken away. The pain is still as hard as it was the day I found out. My life has never been the same. Not a day goes by that he doesn't cross my mind.

He had a smile that was breathtaking. A laugh that was contagious. A heart of gold. He had no enemies. It was impossible to hate Danny Pence.

I feel blessed to have had someone like him in life. Even if it was for a short period of time. I have lots of memories with him that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

I just wanted to get my feelings out about him. A lot of people don't understand the pain and heartache that his family and friends have gone through in the past 12 years. It's pain that really never goes away.

I really don't want to talk about Todd Boggess. He is a P.O.S. and deserves to Rott in prison. He took away someone who is still to this day is the nicest person I have ever met in my life.

Years ago Marc helped me thru a situation and I just want him to know how much it meant to me to have such a positive influence on my life. I have had the opportunity to share the same exact words Marc once shared with me to another person that was in the same difficult spot as I was many years ago.

Something about helping others makes everything come full circle.

Pay it forward and reap the spiritual rewards.


I saw a show just this evening on the murder of Danny Pence, he looked and sounded like a wonderful human.
It's such a shame when society losses a young man the likes of Danny Pence, and get to keep murders the like of Gray.

I'm so very sorry to hear it.

It's such an injustice to allow one of his murders a get out of jail free card, 9 or 12 years just doesn't cut it for murder, and such a horrific murder.

If a girl can be as vile as this girl was at 14, I shudder to think what she'll be at 35.

I agree with Sharlene Pence she will kill again, personally she strikes me as sociopath, certainly her continued crimes in prison proves what she is.

Sharlene Pence, I'm very sorry that you lost your son and so violently, I'm so sorry that one of the murders got a plea bargain.

She played her cards right, she did cry.


It's such a sad injustice.
