I grew up next door to Dan.
I was a few years younger than Dan and the other boys in the neighborhood that I played with. If I wanted to play oh, I needed to play with the boys decided to play. I remember most of my summer was spent playing baseball, playing hide and seek, playing kick-the-can at dusk, and swimming in our family pool.
Since I was the only girl in the neighborhood oh, I found myself playing with the boys all the time. I am sure they weren't real thrilled to have me around all the time. I remember playing baseball and I turned into the official catcher. I remembered and sticking up for me and saying that I should have a chance to bat. So the other boys agreed. And they would give me one chance to swing the bat. I remember Dan saying I needed more opportunity to have fun instead of just catching balls.
I can remember Dan always watching out for me and including me.
I will always remember how kind and caring Dan always was. He always had the best smile.
