Dan. We have known Dan and Nancy for so many years.

Dan will be missed by many.

He was such a Teddy Bear.

No matter how Dan felt he always gave you a Big Smile every time we saw him.

He was a Great Father. And A Super Husband to my Special “Sister’ Nancy. My shopping and talking with Buddy!

Can’t say enough good about him.

He will be missed by a lot of people.

Rest in Peace Dan until we meet again! Love you Nancy!!!!
