To the Rigby Family:
Dan lived life to the fullest. Besides that great smile, he loved his family and truly knew what he wanted out of life. I will never forget the week that I spent with him in West Virginia, and the Circle of Trust. Plain and simple, a good kid, son, brother, and Rugger. He showed us all what life was about.

I am so sorry to hear about Dan. He was a great kid with tremendous character and personality, who always treated me as an equal although I was younger. I enjoyed being a teammate of Dan's tremendously. The world truly has lost a great kid and my prayers are with your family.

Dearest Kevin, Mary and the entire Rigby family,
It has been a very long time since I have seen Danny, but I can not tell you how heart broken my sister and I are to hear of this tragedy. We were cheerleaders on the IHA squad for the BC football team when Dan was a member - we were the twins. He stands out in my mind as one of the nicest and sweetest men that I have ever come across - with the greatest sense of humor. You might recall that he was my sisters date to a 70s dance our senior and his junior year of HS - what memories! My prayers are with all of you May God grant you the strength and love to get through this.
With Love and Prayers,
Meaghan Murphy
