Dad,

I miss you more than I can say. What I will miss most about you is your smile and how your face lite up each time we saw you or talked to you on the phone. I will miss our phone calls and how without fail, you always asked about Elton.

Your heart was huge, dad. Filled with so much love and pride for all of us.

You were our Ray of Light. Rest easy dad!

Love you
Jackie

Dan will be missed at all of the kids' sporting events - he was an avid supporter of everything the grandkids are involved in. The family get togethers will not be the same without him.

He had a great sense of humor and a great love for his family. May he rest in peace.
