Tanya, you were loved by many.  We will see you on that glorious day--- Rest in eternal peace.

Danielle Gabrielle Lawrence
Born: February 3, 1998
Died: February 15, 2015
Best known to us all as Danie, she was the first child of Antonio Lawrence and Tanya Lawrence. She arrived in this world on February 3, 1998 and departed February 15, 2015. Danielle is survived by her father, Antonio Lawrence; her brother, Jamal Pines; her sister, Brandy Lawrence; her grandparents and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Danielle attended high school in the Riverhead School District, in Riverhead, New York. She was in the tenth grade. She played the violin and was a member of orchestra for 4 years. Danielle was involved in a wide range of activities. She was a member of the Drama Club, and performed in numerous school plays. She was athletic; she played lacrosse and ran track and field. Having been blessed with a tall slender build she modeled in fashion shows in the United States and Jamaica. She was a member of Poetic Life Ministries Facebook Group. Danielle planned on attending college to study music and dreamed of becoming a writer.
Danielle was a shy young woman. However, behind that quiet exterior hid a fiercely determined and loyal child, sister and friend. She loved her family, friends and music. Danielle's love of music is well known, and more particularly her love of the group One Direction. She had a beautiful voice that was pure and sweet. She dreamed of sharing her love of music with the world. In fact, she even braved the long lines and hours in the sun to try out for X-Factor talent show. Danielle often shared little pieces of heart with the world by posting videos on Facebook, of herself singing.
She had an uncanny ability to sit qiuetly in a crowd but when she hit the stage, she blossomed. All the beauty and light that was Danielle was open and bright for the world to see and share. Danielle was a wonderful person that gave unconditional love, to those of us that had the privilege to know and love her. She will be missed. It seems fitting to end with the Shakespeare, "Though she be but little, she is fierce!" - William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
