“Dannielynn is probably the funniest, craziest kid that I’ve met with the craziest sense of humor, just like her mom. She’s fearless and fun…. She has Anna’s smile, Anna’s mouth, and a lot of attributes that Anna has that she continues and carries on.” – Larry, on his beautiful daughter.
“She misses her mom so much. Right now she’s at the age where she’s noticing that other children in television and in books have moms. She said to me the other day quite seriously, “Where’s my mom?” It was sad but I explained to her, “Your mommy is in the clouds and you’ll see her again one day.” She knows who her mom is, though — I make sure of that. Our home is filled with photos of Anna and recognizes her straight away. I want to keep her mom and Daniel in her mind.” – Larry, on helping Dannielynn to keep Anna’s memory alive.
