Love without a place to go.
Eulogy for Daniel L. Gaskin. Delivered by Jennifer J. Gaskin, wife.
Daniel L. Gaskin - D’Bandit
July 7, 1977 - November 25, 2023
To My Husband:
We told each other we loved each other all the time. I know that you love me and you know I love you. The one thing that I’m not sure I ever told you is how proud I was of you and to be your wife. I really hope that you knew that I was and everyday that we shared our life together was one I’d live again, good and bad, just to have more time with you.
The biggest blessings sometimes come at the darkest times and in the darkest places. When my father passed away in 2015, you stepped into your role as my husband in a way that I never imagined. You loved me back to life, protected and healed me. I never imagined that I could’ve been loved like you loved me. I never imagined being connected to you in the ways that we achieved.
I will forever be, Mrs. Daniel Gaskin. My husband is my best friend, protector, debate partner, loving critic, an amazing father, brother, son, cousin and friend. He will never stop being here for us all now.
Whenever I attempt to describe D to someone that doesn’t know him I always default to telling them - he’s an OG and it’s apparent when you meet him. I do mean that in the most loving way. He was MY OG and I was his around the way girl turned Starbucks.
