My warmest heartfelt thoughts of love go to Jimmy & Matt and all of Danny's family.
May his journey on be freeing and peace filled. No doubt that his father & brother will be there to assure a welcoming smooth transition.
Let this be a reminder to us all of the fragility of life.
Blessed be.

I feel so lucky to have known Dan Dillon. He enriched my life in so many wsys. We were good friends for twenty years since my first grandson was born. Many of my closest friends are grieving with me because of his kindness and caring nature toward them over the years.
I remember Dan helping me set up my second grade classroom at the start of the school year. He had so many ideas to make the room functional and fun and attractive to my second graders. I remember our taking a trip to San Diego and visiting Old Town and the old haunts of Dan's college days. We had the habit of taking walks around Desert Falls Country Club and he always told me stories that made me crack up. He knew how to laugh and put others at ease in his presence whether with my ten-year-old granddaughter Emma or my 90-year old neighbor Sylvia. He was the only person besides me who was acceptable to my cat Layla who lived a hearty 22 years. She would as easily rub herself against Dan's ankles as she would mine. Yet Layla was known to attack any other male who entered my home. My beautiful Coco, an Irish setter/Golden retriever, was frequently found walking with Dan at the Rose Garden when I was recovering from three knee surgeries between 2004 and 2011. Dan had a soft spot in his heart for creatures. If he ever sat down with anyone to revisit the classic film Old Yeller, he would not be able to see it through without shedding a tear.
I was blessed to have Dan as a friend because I have wonderful memories that will always bring a smile to my face. Dan, just as the rest of us, had human frailties. But I never knew him to have an ounce of meanness toward anyone. He was not Judgmental. Once when I was criticizing someone we both knew fairly well, he was silent for a minute or two. Then he put his arm around me and said, I'm not perfect, you're not perfect, maybe we can let that go. It was a profound moment for me. And I have had to remind myself of his words many times.
