Where do i begin, I want to say how deeply sorry I am to the family for their loss. Dan was an amazing man. His daughter and I have been friends for a long time actually about 25 years. On the weekends when I would stay the night with julie dan would always bring home mc donalds for us without fail. I also remember no matter how loud we were or how late we stayed up Dan never yelled at us. He was infamous for also making sure we had doughnuts as well. He was like a dad to me always there giving advice but never yelling at us, dan was so patient. I will truely miss him. In pain no longer, he is now in gods army looking after us all. Ann i am so sorry for your loss I couldnt imagine life without the man id spent so many years with. Julie as my best friend my heart breaks for you, your dad was one of a kind. Always remember that he will be looking over you his lil girl you will always be daddys girl.
