I am so sorry for the loss of this wonderful man and Airman. We worked together for a short time at PSI, but his dedication to his country is what I will remember the most.
Rest easy, sir!

I am so sorry for your loss Mary. Dan said, many times, that he knew you had his back. Always. It meant a lot to him. He was a great guy. I enjoyed working with him, and I will miss his sense of humor and his kindness.
