Not sure what to say?

Greetings from Cape Town, South Africa.

Wind, Brass, Percussion & Wind Chimes
Dedicated to the Memory: Daniel Vigus

Where sounds the Wind Chimes on the Corinthian leather?
Please blow harder on that reed as moisten English feather.

The Brass sounds fine but where do I put my shaking hands?
First chair now, but notes quite distant on these music stands.

I’m off around with Percussion what too soon directly speaks?
Play one more time up tempo no crescendo flutes horns...

One night last year while tuning up in the "Scrooge" orchestra, an excited whisper went through the pit from player to player: "Dan Vigus is here!" I'm pretty sure that when Dan arrived in heaven this week, the Angel Band set up that same excited buzz: "Dan Vigus is here!". He touched our children's lives in an unforgettable way. To God be the Glory.

I remember Dan leading the YVCS band in playing the William Tell Overture and when they got to the part that has become the Lone Ranger's Theme, everyone stopped and put on Lone Ranger masks, Dan included! Dan was a Godly disciplinarian but he also knew how to have fun. I'm sure he's warming up a band right now in Heaven. He will be missed, but only for a little while, until we are all together again for eternity. Condolences to Nancy and the rest of his family.

Sad but rejoicing that you are now with your lord and can play beautiful music for all eternity. Love and prayers go to Nancy and the boys

My 3rd grade teacher! I'll never forget you!

Dan Vigus was too precious for this world-the Lord must have needed him more for the heavenly orchestra coming soon!!He taught all three of our sons how to juggle, which end to blow out of on their horns, and most importantly,how to become a Godly, sincere,Christ-like man....we will miss you in this world, but rejoice for you in the next..see you soon....

Our heartfelt sympathies and prayers go out to the Vigus Family on the loss of Dan. We will always remember him for his unwavering devotion to raise each child in the Christian way of life. He will always hold a special place in Eric's heart for the way he inspired his love of music through the Ygnacio Christian School band. May you know that many will miss Dan. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of great sorrow.

We grieve, but not as those who have no hope. Dan and Nancy touched our lives through YVCS almost 30 years ago, and our family has been the better for it. Dan loved our children, and modeled Christ before them, and us. We celebrate his life, and we know his legacy is vast, and remains.
