In the book, he chronicles the rollercoaster of raw emotions as he comes to discover what is really important to him as well as learning a new level of trust and acceptance.
Miriam Gormally talks with his close friend Margaret Siberry, who was by his side during his final days, and even helped complete his book after Fr Daniel passed away. Margaret explains more about Daniel’s diagnosis and his journey to come to terms with it.
