Dear Carmen & Family,
Dan Wilkens was my mentor while I worked under his direction for seven years. I always looked up to Dan, not just because he's tall, but because of his integrity and his natural leadership style that I'll never forget. Dan had a strong influence on me and contributed to my success as a city planner and a leader in government. I have the highest regard for Dan; a kind man; a man that was true to his word; and a man that held firm on his values. I learned so much from Dan. I owe him so much. This world will miss Dan Wilkens!
