Dan was a terrific person. He was gruff around the edges but you could not find a more generous man to those who deserved it. A great friend who taught me more than I can ever "pay it forward". He treated me like a son and I will never forget him. He will be greatly missed by all. He is no longer in pain which he battled for the last year of his life and for this his death is a bit of a blessing. He battled right up to the end but told me many a time "if I die tomorrow I have lived a great life - more than one could ever expect to live". Ann my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. I am here if you ever need me. You have lost a terrific man, friend, husband and father of your children but know he is no longer suffering. My prayers and thoughts are with you.
