I just found out about this sad news. He was a buddy of mine in Dallas. I met his mom. I'd wondered why I hadn't heard from him and thought I'd find him on FB. Sad to hear. Thank you for being a great guy Dan!!

I worked closely with Dan at UTSW Medial Center. Dan was great to work with, warm and friendly, as well as being an excellent researcher. We missed Dan greatly when he took the position with the APA. I just found out about Dan's passing from one of his former research assistants who had recently tried to contact him to thank him for all the help and support he provided. Dan was an outstanding colleague, as well as a great mentor and role model for his students. He will be greatly missed.

Dr. Galper, I've heard your loss today from Dr. Ortman. I try to understand and feel your grief.. so young, sooo early... I remember how soft and giving and compassionate you were on your loved ones. I pray from my heart for you and family to have the strength, courage and acceptance to survive. Love and my deepest sympathy to you Dr. Galper. Serra Edes, MVC '95 alumna

Alice, Harvey, David...

I just found out about your loss through VOICES. Please accept my late condolences. Danny and I were friends at BFCDS. I'm struck by how much he looks at 47 (ish) the same as the Danny I remember and who was my playground friend.

With sadness for your loss, and the loss of those whom he served through his work,

Dan is my "nephew in law" as I am Sharon Kearns' aunt. I love Dan. He was so eager to help when you had a problem. Dan was also very funny and fun loving. I will miss him very much...he meant a lot to our family...and to me. Many blessings to you Dan, and to your parents. Linette Gagnon

Dear Harvey and Alice:

We are so saddened to learn of the loss of your son, Dan. I remember meeting him years ago and thinking what a dynamic and friendly person he was. I also remember fondly the stories you would tell, Harvey, of your children. And when you shared those stories, you just beamed. Your love for both Dan and David was always on full display. Please know that Eric and I are praying for you, Alice and David as you move through this very difficult time. May the memories of Dan shine bright for you.

I learned of Dan's passing today. He was in an improv class we me and I really enjoyed seeing the joy that he got from preforming improv. He will not be forgotten. I pray peace, strength and courage for the Galper family at this time.

Dr. Galper, I am so sorry to hear about this news. I remember going to your house for a dinner and you had beautiful family photos of your children around the house. Sending you a big hug, Kerry Banks (MVC 1993)

I'm so sorry for your loss. I lived across the hallway from Dan the past few years and have had the privilege of chatting with him a few times. He always had a smile on his face and made it a point to stop and say hi when we would see each other in the neighborhood. I always loved coming home from work to hear him strumming the guitar outside his unit. He will be greatly missed!

Harvey, so sorry to see that you've lost a son. My wife has lost both her children during the last few years so I maybe have an idea of what a terrible experience it is.

Hope you and your family get through it all and have lots of good things in the future.
