Dear Capt Sizer and Balcon Family,
I briefly met Dane here in Miami when he visited his father before deploying. I know that you are very, very proud of what and who Dane Balcon was. He was a bright, dedicated young man with manners and principles. He was a young man with a deep sense of commiment to what both his parents and others close enough to influence him taught him...service to his country. I personally thank you for your sacrifice to our country. May God give you comfort and closure on this painful part of the journey called life. I know Dane is in a better place. It was my sincere pleasure to briefly speak with him. The few minutes we spoke were enough for me to see what a beautiful person he was.
