We are so very sorry for the loss of Dan and share your grief as we mourn his passing. He was a very special guy that meant a lot to Dagmar and I. We have many fond memories of the times we shared. Even though we now live far away your family is still often in our thoughts. The canoe trips, camping, softball seasons, business trips together, Gem City nights, laughing with all the "gang" at our many gatherings. So many fond memories that will not fade as time goes on. We celebrate Dan's life and the time we had to share in it. Lori, we send you and your family our love and prayers.
