Many years, many memories shared with this great friend. He made us laugh so much at times. Teased me all the time about being the OLDER SISTER. I always called him my BIG BRO. He was also so helpful to Roger regarding VETERANS affairs. Oh yes for sure he will be sadly missed by us. Be at rest now dear sweet friend. Your job is completed, now watch over all of us from HEAVEN as our angel. I will look for the signs. You will NEVER EVER BE FORGOTTEN. Love you always my SWEET FRIEND.

I will always remember how Uncle Dan would come and pick tomatoes from my garden while I was at work. He'd bring them home and Aunt Joyce would blanch and skin them then he would return them to me so I could make sauce. He and Aunt Joyce were both selfless in so many ways!

I’ll will always remember you even if it was a short time. Enjoyed playing cards with you at the hospital. Especially liked your suggestion to go back to the veterans administration and apply for a mobile walker. Did that plus I now have a mobile electric scooter. Your counseling to me really helped and I know you have helped other veterans out in a similar manner. You will be missed for sure but will remain in our hearts
