Danny & I were very close, in high school. We'd spend countless hours in deep conversation about life, philosophy, the wonders of nature, ect. Yes. Danny loved to fish! We'd spend time together making lures and fishing flies! Though we lost touch after graduation, I've thought of him often throughout my life. How blessed for him & his family that he found true love, then expressed that love with children! Be at peace, knowing that he will always be with you. He will send you little signs that mean 'I love you" May God bless you and surround you with Angels.

Joyce - Two months ago one of my dearest friends passed away. Losing Dan was like losing a family member. My heart still grieves for him. He was always kind, loving and caring to me and mine. I never felt like I was just another person. He always made me feel special. Christmas Eve is going to be a sad time this year, but we will get through it together. I love you, Stephanie and Jodi very much.
Til Les passed I did not know of this site or I would have writen sooner.

Joyce, I was so saddened at the loss of your beloved Dan. Dan was the kind of man that made you feel like a friend right from the start. He had a devotion to you and Stephanie, that was very apparent and showed that he had a huge loving heart. I will miss him. May GOD bless you and may he give strength during this trying time. With love and deepest sympathy, Phil and Jill Dobos
