I don't visit here often gramps, it's not easy missing your best friend and grandfather. I'm trying not to fall to short of your expectations, grant it happens here and there. Though turns out you were wrong about the car, she's awesome...

Missing you like crazy gramps.

A Special Tribute to the special man that is Dan Hand. As anyone that knows his family, he and grandma raised a very special close knit family. I am amazed at how they have rallyed around each other at this time of need without sometime not even needing to speak a word. That is just how close that they all are. I feel so priviliged to have known Dan and had become somewhat of an adopted older grandson and friend through his grandson Bryan. The love that this family shows to one another is a tribute to how Dan and Genelle raised their family. All of My Love To Dan and His VERY special Family in my heart. I Miss Grandpa everyday!

I write as a tribute and in memory of my father--my special and wonderful dad for 54 1/2 years and whom I will never forget!! I have a very wonderful and special mom to take care of as she needs me as well. I think of you every day--every time I look at birds in the backyard or at a can of split pea soup as well as hundreds of other things! I miss you so much and I will always LOVE YOU daddy!!

I must say that I was taken aback by the musical performance of Kevin Hand, Daniel's son.
Beaulah Land was amazing. I'm not quite sure how you made it through both of those songs. I am sure that Grandpa was so proud of you. That was a beautiful service yesterday.

My sincere sympathy and prayers go out to the Hand Family. I pray for God to comfort them during their time of grief.

I have known Grandpa for about seven years now, I met him through his grandson Bryan. Life is funny, my father was friends with Dan in the 60's and 70's.And then I go and meet up with him later in my life.
He was a very devoted to his family and made me feel like I was a part of his family.
I could always talk to him about anything and he would share opinion, even if it was not what I wanted to hear. It was the right thing to do.
He was an honest man that I miss already
Love you Grandpa, Andrew

For the last two years we would have lunch at the various restaurants around town, my grandfather never made me feeler smaller than him, he always made me feel like an equal. I'm going to miss our talks about local news, politics... and especially his old war stories. He wasn't just my grandfather after all, he was my best friend.

Dan was my uncle. What I remember about him most was his great love of his family and his support of his children and grandchildren through thick and thin. Dan also loved gardening and collecting; passions common to both our families. I imagine him now looking down at us from heaven, smiling and wishing us well. Aunt Jan, Karen, Kevin, and Teresa, you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
