Not sure what to say?

I had the privilege of trying a civil rights case with Dan and Elaine in Maine a few years ago. Dan was brilliant, low key, and gave one of the best cross exams i've ever witnessed- all while battling cancer. Although he was visibly exhausted at the end of each day, he never complained. His performances, and deep knowledge of constitutional law, were spellbinding

Dan was far too young. He was very brave and self effacing. Most importantly, he retained his great sense of...

I was so saddened to learn of Dan's death. He was a wonderful friend to me when we both worked at the Michigan Capitol. I always thought that sometime in the future our paths would cross again. Please accept my deepest sympathy. I can only imagine how much you must miss his wry humor, quit wit and upbeat attitude. He was one of those people in my life who I will always remember fondly and for whom tonight I have shed more than a few tears.

Elaine, I will never forget the great times working with Dan in Lansing launching MILW. He was a great teacher and mentor. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Elaine: Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Dan. You all have been great friends. May God Bless Dan and give you the patience and fortitude to move forward with the many fond memories that you and Dan shared. We will remember Dan "the warrior"

All our love and prayers are with you. Becky, Liam and Finn Domegan

I surely will miss Dan's quirky humor, his strategic thinking and great work ethic. It was a pleasure working with him on my case. I miss him a lot.
Our prayers go out to you.

Elaine, So very sad to hear of Dan's passing...such a wonderful man...with so much to offer all of us. Dan was a lucky man to have such a devoted and loving wife as you...am thinking of you and sending you much love...Susan Middleton Campbell

I worked at Michigan Lawyers Weekly (and for Lawyers Weekly Publications in general) from 1992-2004. I never knew Dan personally, but always heard stories about him and his days as publisher. I came on board at Michigan Lawyers Weekly after graduating from law school in May 1992. At the time, Dan was in transition between Michigan Lawyers Weekly and the LW corporate office in Boston. I only saw him a few times, and met him once. I always heard great things about him. My condolences to the...

“…grief is like the wake behind a boat. It starts out as a huge wave that follows close behind you and is big enough to swamp and drown you if you suddenly stop moving forward. But if you do keep moving, the big wake will eventually dissipate. And after a long enough time, the waters of your life get calm again, and that is when the memories of those who have left begin to shine as bright and as enduring as the stars above.”
