Dan, Know that I think of you often. You never judge. You recognize that everyone has something to offer the world, and you help each of us fulfill this. You give everything you have to inspire joy, in the simplest, most rewarding ways. I miss you, brother.

Dan was a great man and we were all lucky to have known him and to have had him in our lives. He was taken from us too soon though his memory and the impressions he made upon those who knew him best will not be soon forgotten. May you rest in peace cousin, we will all truly miss you.

Dan was a teammate of my son Brett at LaSalle University. I always enjoyed watching Dan and all the fine young men on the team play ball. Rest in peace Dan; I know we'll all miss you.

Dan was a great man, cousin and friend. He was always someone I looked up to and admired. He was one of the nicest persons I have ever known. He left us too early. I know he will truly be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him and, especially, by me.

Dan was an amazing friend. He was so kind, giving, funny...I could go on and on. Dan and I were roomates for a while in DE, and I always look back on that time with awesome memories. Dan was so good to me. He was always so supportative of me(no matter how irrational I was :) ), giving me the bigger bathroom and bedroom(he treated me like I was a princess), waiting up for me at night, ordering my favorite Chinese when I was sad, and laughing so hard on our balcony for hours and hours. I will forever hold our times together close to my heart. I will miss him always.
I am so sorry. I hope that you all may find some peace in the days to come. Love, Kristen

Dan, you were a great guy. I really enjoyed working with you. So sorry to hear of your passing. You always managed to keep things light no matter how much stress we were under and I learned so much from you. I know you are in a better place. Until we meet again, Friend...

Dan, I will miss you very much. I miss our dinners, our talks, and especially our funny stories we shared that would make us laugh or rather make you laugh your ridiculous laugh only to make me laugh harder. I miss our Greenville days when we would get stressed and we would stop, throw a football until we each got a perfect spiral. I miss our big dreams we had of our long list of inventions that now will never happen without you. May your brilliant mind and worries be at rest. I miss my old Dan so very much.

Dan, I will miss you very much. I miss our dinners, talks we always had and all of the funny stories we used to share that would make us laugh or rather you'd laugh that ridiculous laugh, making me laugh harder. I miss working together in the Greenville office where when we were stressed, we'd have to stop, throw a football back and forth until we each got a perfect spiral. We had big dreams together of amazing inventions and now will never come true without you. May your brilliant mind finally be at rest and all of your worries be gone.

Dan, I am so blessed to have known you. You had such a big heart and wonderful sense of humor. I appreciate the time you took to get to know the folks of Support Services where I worked. You took them to Phillies games and always there to listen And care. I miss you Dan.

You were one of the first people I met at Greenville and by far one of the smartest and funniest individuals I've ever known. It's been a while since I last saw you, but I'll always remember the great times we had working together. I am deeply saddened by this news and may you rest in peace.

It is nearly impossible to express in words how much we all loved and admired Dan, and especially how much we will miss him. Dan was one reason I decided to become a parent. I have only the very best memories of Dan. Camping at the beach (sorry about that nail in your foot Dan!), walking down the aisle at our wedding so proud of your cowboy boots, watching you play in the ocean and pool, hearing about all your successes in sports, school and work, always concerned about and helping others in need, and just being with you. I know you are finally in a place of peace where you will never again feel pain. Love, Uncle Bob
