I had lost track of Dan working at the Post Office many years ago, he was a hard working fun person to be around, we worked on the same LSM's for many years & played cards almost every day before work & at lunch breaks. I am so sorry Karla & family for your loss. Though I haven't seen him in years I still feel the loss of a very good friend. We seem to lose track of our work friends after out jobs change & retirement. Love & miss you both. R.I.P my Friend.
