No words can express my gratitude to all the messages and text me and my mother have received. Even if we didn’t responded, you were heard with love. Please stay strong for all the family as we pass through the next few weeks. Dad loved you all… more than you even realize. pic.twitter.com/I8rMN8toiL— Danny ✭ Earnhardt Jr (@DREjr88) December 11, 2021
