Not sure what to say?

Dan, you were more than a coworker, you were more like family! You will truly be missed!

Dan was such great friend and had the biggest heart. He would take his shirt off if you needed it. Although we haven't spoken in many years, we were great friends in high school and after. So sad to hear of great man taken way too early. My condolences to his family who I know he loved more than anything.

My dearest husband
Your were my world and I was yours.
If we were not at work we were always together doing anything and everything but always by each other’s side. You were my friend, my confident, my class clown, my partner, my partner in crime, my lover, my everything. I will always treasure my time with you. I love you and miss you dearly. You are gone but you will never be forgotten. Fly high my love spread your wings and fly higher you now have no more worries you are now...

I would like to express my sympathies to dan nicole draper debbie draper and the rest of the in laws of dans. Also, to his children as well. Trevor, Tristan, and Amanda. Im sure hes up in heaven with Amy, his bro in law Robbie ,and his mother in law. May you rest in peace, Dan.
