I've considered Dan my best friend for the last 45 years.We ,literally, shared some life and death experiences in the past and, even though we haven't seen each other in 20 years, when we talked it was like we had seen each other last week. Dan has never liked goodbys so lately whenever I suggested coming down he wanted me to wait "until he felt better" in a few weeks. That was his way. I'll miss him very much. My most sincere condolences to Laura, Jill and Wendy and everyone else that loved him.
