To the Citarella Family- Dan had a smile that would light up even he biggest room. He was a wonderful friend with an amazing sense of humor and could turn any bad day into a great one. It was always great to share a birthday with him and will miss our birthday day chats. I always looked forward to them. He is one the strongest people I have met in my life, and it is my pleasure to call him one of my closest friends. His strength has inspired many and will live on through us all. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I hope your memories bring peace and warmth to your heart. Much Love
