Our sincerest condolences go out to Dan's family. We fondly remember him as the kind hearted gentleman he was, in every sense of the word. He was always so pleasant to talk to and never had an unkind word to say about anybody. We can't count the times he came out to pay his respects to so many families who came to us in their time of need. May God be with you in your journey through this valley of sorrow and may you feel the comfort of His strong arms carrying you through the darkest moments. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
