From Loraine to Maryland for his brother....

From Loraine to Maryland and back in 60 hours, through deep snows and icy conditions! Derk Doyle was snowed in in Maryland, and his brother, Daniel, was determined to go and get him so he could be home for Christmas. It took 60 hours roundtrip but they made it back home. Derek and Daniel are the sons of Mike and JoAnna Gonzales and their grandparents are Robert and Judy Doyle.
