To the Randall family – my thoughts are with you at this difficult time.  Many memories of growing up in Landis Farms come to mind.  Dan was a good man – very outgoing, upbeat and positive.  As previously noted, you couldn’t have uses a better picture of him.  He was always interested in knowing about my family, where they were, what they were doing.  Plain and simple, he took a liking to people.  And he loved his girls.  May memories of happy times with Dan carry on with you, give you comfort and bring you smiles.

I was a neighbor of Dan’s for 10 years at KHC. I could set my watch to his daily walks for most of those years and have missed our exchange of pleasantries and witty one-liners. The first time I met him was an act of kindness. I was struggling to fix my damaged mailbox and he walked over and jumped right in. He was a great man. We will continue to pray for Joanie and the family. With Love,

Dad – words can not express the loss and sorrow that I feel.  You were an amazing Father.  You supported and loved Joanie, Nancy, Stacie, and I, as well as our friends and neighbors through good times and bad.  Fond memories of Dan and Hedgerow Lane will never be forgotten – you have touched the lives of many…

Sorry for your loss girls.  Your Dad was the epitome of a gentleman for the 30 years we worked together.  I could never beat him in golf, but I had better luck in tennis!  Best regards.

We lost another great man!  I worked with your Dad at the PA Dutch Convention and Visitor Bureau.  I was in the office but got to work with the staff out in the center and or able to eat lunch with them.  He talked about the trips they took and all the hostels they stayed at. A lot of fun and yes very hospitable! Another one of the staff now chattering in heaven!
