Dan & Michele's family members...

A lot of years has passed since we used to laugh and have fun at the Trussell's in Lawrenceville. How great it would be to be able to re-live those times.

Dianne & I enjoyed the company of you two.

I am sure Michele will be missed. You have our deepest condolences.

Dear Dan and family,
Michele and I grew up in Canton, NY. Our lives crossed from time to time, and each time it was as if we had just seen each other yesterday. She was always positive, full of fun, and able to mix old memories with current situations.
I will miss those opportunities to catch up with her, and share our lives.

Dear Dan, family and Friends,

I’m sorry we never had the opportunity to meet your wife. We remember asking you how you met. A smile came across your face and you told us that you were out of her league, but bit by bit you wore her down with your charms. You told us about your beautiful family and you once again gave her every kudo for her efforts. The pictures posted here tell a wonderful story. 50 years of love is a major accomplishment in this day and age. We also appreciate that she had a heart for creatures great and small and her service to the SPCA is to be admired.

Your family is our prayers as you celebrate Michelle’s life.

I read about Michele’s passing on Facebook today. I extend my deepest sympathy to Dan Hazen and family. I knew Michele at school in Canton, NY, and she always had a smile. Her smile and dimples were dazzling. Danny, we went to school at Hermon-DeKalb and I was so happy for you both when you met. My Mom and Dad and I lived in your former family home next to the library in Hermon. May God bless you and comfort you.
