DEAR DAN, WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME AND MY FAMILY. YOU HAVE ALWAYS HAD MY BACK, NO MATTER WHAT! YOU COVERED ME WHEN I HAD TO STOP WORKING. YOU TOOK ME TO OUR MEETINGS IN LONG ISLAND WHEN I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE CARFARE! YOU PAID FOR MY TRIPS TO WASHINGTON D.C. TO CELEBRATE MEMORIAL AND VETERAN'S DAY. YOU REFUSED TO LET ME REIMBURSE YOU WHEN MY DISABILITY FINALLY CAME THROUGH! MOST IMPORTANTLY, YOU STOOD BY MY SIDE WHEN MY MOTHER PASSED AWAY, AND YOU PLANTED A TREE IN HER NAME! WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU AS LONG AS WE LIVE! GOD BLESS YOU! HOPE TO SEE YOU IN HEAVEN! JR, STEPHANIE & FAMILY
