Handsome Dan. The hood will not be the same without you. Your early Saturday morning mowing and leaf blowing., car vacuuming, your classic rock playing in the background, your smile, your hardy laughter...I can go on and on...will all be missed so much. You fought like crazy and you tried so hard to stick around - all with a smile on your face. We’ll all take care of Kathy. No worries. I love you always.

There are no words that can express our heartbreak because there is no one quite like you in the world. You are beyond a incredible brother, uncle, Godfather and best friend and throughout everything that you have endured you never stopped bringing constant laughter and unending love to our lives. You will be missed on earth every moment and carried in our hearts forever
