My Dear Sister, I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your husband, Dana. I've been praying and asking God to please wrap his loving arms around you and give you the comfort, peace and strength you need to get through these hard days ahead of you. You know, my heart is broken as well. I loved Dana. I loved him even more, cause he loved YOU!! He was so much fun - the life of a party. His smile and laughter was so contagious. I always enjoyed watching him around kids and the way he would pick on them was hilarious! They enjoyed it as well. He sure was a character. I will always treasure the fond memories I have of him. He will be missed, that's for sure. I'm so happy he was part of our family. I know he will be watching over you, Tina. Until we meet again, Rest In Peace, Dana. Fly high with the Angels. Love always, Audrey

Dana and I were together from the mid 80โ€™s to the early 90โ€™s. During this time, God used Dana to bless us both with our precious daughter Rachel. Although, Dana was not a perfect man, as none on this earth are, I still have many good and cherished memories of our time together. While Dana and I were together, we attended a small Baptist church. Dana led a bus ministry that reached many in the surrounding community. Dana was adored by the many children and families that this ministry brought to church, and I believe to Christ. I can still see him bounding off that bus on Sunday mornings heading for church with all the families he had just picked up. I also remember the many Saturdays he would be up at church fixing something or mowing the grass, only to come home for a quick bite, shower, and out the door to visit the kids and families on his bus route. So thankful that God can use imperfect people in mighty ways!! Praying for peace and comfort for Danaโ€™s wife Tina, and his family. Rest in Jesus Dana.
