My cousin Dan and I lived close to each other when we were children. One day his mother had the radio on, playing "You are My Sunshine." Dan started singing the song, and I became upset, telling his mother, "Aunt Chana, Dan is singing my song!" Dan was a born-again Christian during the last few months of his life. He loved Jesus Christ with all his heart, after asking Jesus into his heart, and He changed Dan's life. Dan believed the Holy Bible as the true word of God. Dan is in Heaven now, happy with Jesus and his parents! He would invite you to another meeting place some day: our reunion somewhere in Heaven.

I met Dan at Brookdale Patriot Heights, the retirement community where we were both residents. Shortly thereafter, I met LaNell, and I could sense there was an immediate attraction between them. That New Year's Eve, I kind of arranged the seating at our table so that they would be seated together and that one of them had to lean towards the other in order to see around a very large and ominous pole blocking our view of the lovely lady who was our entertainment for the evening. Well, you guessed it, sparks flew and the next time I saw them together they were coming down the hall holding hands. I just grinned knowing I had done my best as Cupid's sidekick. After they were married, they both gave me credit for getting them together. I'll take it but I truly believe it would have happened eventually anyway. I'm so happy they had this short time of love together to enjoy each other and be happy together. Rest in peace, my friend Dan. I'm happy to have known you. And LaNell, you have my deepest sympathies, my friend. Love you both!
