Sending sympathy to the Hiatt family at this time. Our Fisher Family & the Hiatt Family go way back, to our wonderful Monument City days. All of us kids used to play together when younger as well as go to school together, too. My mother went to school with Dan's dad Harvey, at Banquo, as I went to school at MC with Connie, Dan, Ann, Betty & Sherry. All great memories. My thoughts & prayers are with the family at this time. Sending my love, sincerely, Kathryn Fisher Trisler.

My husband and I were Dan's neighbor when he lived with Carl and Connie. He helped Carl take care of his lawn and pick up limbs and sticks from the many trees. Dan was friendly, always speaking and talking to us. We didn't know he was sick. Our condolence to the family.
