I knew Dan through my work at the Southington VNA many years ago. What a remarkable individual he was! He was smart and always involved in his care and a crusader who was determined to help the handicapped.
Please accept my sympathy and prayers for such an outstanding man.

Rest in peace my friend. You amazed me with your strength and determination. Although we lost touch over the years I only have good memories of our younger days. It was good to catch up a few years ago. Time slips by. I pray you are exploring the afterlife in a way you couldn't here on earth. My heart goes out to your family.
