I am so sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed spending time with your family as a child. Dan seemed to me to be a very kind and happy go lucky guy. I will never forget my first trip to the beach with Dan, Esther, Kim Sprow and Karen Imes. I remember the first time I saw the ocean at OCMD and romping in the waves with you guys and our visit to Frontier Land. I appreciate that memory so much and wish I had taken the opportunity to tell Dan that while he was still here 😥. May God comfort you all through this time. Love, Donna (Burdge) Reath
