Barbara, I'm sorry to hear about Dan's passing. I see you were married for 47 years. I know that if it were possible you would have liked another 47. I didn't know Dan but I re read your 50th year class reunion bio and it sounds like you both lived your lives not only with but for each other. God gives us glimpses of His love in those we love. I know you are grateful to Him for the gift of Dan. I also know that Dan is thanking God for the love and the joy that you gave him as his wife.
