Dan,

I write this shortly after 20th anniversary of your crossing. You were my best friend when we attended the University of Cincinnati. I learned of your murder in 2002 when I tried to find you again on the internet. The world lost a good soul and my friend when you crossed-over. Several days ago, I heard an Olivia Newton-John song on the radio, and immediately thought of you. I miss you greatly, think of you often, talk to you occasionally, and will see you again sooner than later.

As any Boy Scout would understand: "You left this campsite in much better condition than you found it in".

Please give my Mattie a hug, and help him when he needs it.

Love you & miss you. Prayers to your family. God Bless,
Greg
