“Yesterday the world misplaced a little bit of its gentle,” former castmate Danny Cahill wrote on Fb on Monday.
“Daniel Wright and I met for the primary time in Could of 2009 on the seaside in Malibu. 15 of us went to the seaside that morning to start our journey on season eight of The Greatest Loser,” Cahill recalled. “Our 16th contestant was pushed as much as the beginning place of that first 1-mile race (which he received) and out popped Daniel. ‘Hey guys!!!’ He yelled as he jogged over to us. Little did I do know the impact this man would have on my life.”
“Daniel’s gentle has all the time been one among Grace, encouragement, knowledge, love and honor all through the time I’ve identified him. And I can actually say that due to him I’m a greater man,” Cahill’s touching message continued. “He confirmed me (by instance – not by telling me) the way to look after others another way, and I thank God for having the ability to know this man for the 10 years I’ve identified him. We might all be taught a lesson from him how necessary it’s to go away a mark of affection on these we meet, to put down variations and to see similarities, and to serve these round us in any approach we are able to.”
