So sorry for the loss of Dan . We thought the world of Dan not only as an amazing artist but as a great man.
I remember the day I heard him speak on the radio about his artwork in Cleveland .Dan was very exciting to listen to that day . Bob and I also remember the art commentary corner in the Plain Dealer that Dan wrote . Bill you remember I told you that when I read Dans column I had to look up some of the words I wrote to...

Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.

Dear Dee, Bill, Billy, Maria and Michelle,
Our prayers and thoughts are with all of you, wish we could be with you at this time. We are having a Mass said for Dan at St. Mary's, the place and times when we were all together with happy memories. May those happy memories be with you always, and may Dan rest in peace in God's loving arms. Love to All, Tomi and Bob Gaudio
