My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I never had the honor of meeting Dan but always heard about him thru Dana. I felt like I did know him because she spoke so highly of him and what a great guy he was.
My sympathy to you all.

Dear Cathy & family,
I will remember Dan as one of the nicest, gentle man that I ever met. He always had a quick laugh and a witty comeback when my late husband, Tom Rapp and he would banter back and forth and it was always fun times together. I feel for your loss as losing a spouse, a father and a grandfather is sorrowful. I wish you the strength through your grief and know that he is no longer in any pain and at peace. My prayers are with you through this sad time. Keep your fond memories close as they will help through this sad time. My thoughts are with you.
