Dan, Thinking of you again, and missing you. I played Dan Fogelberg and Olivia Newton-John songs in your honor.

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 son Mattie a hug, and help him when he needs it.

You are such a good soul. Love you & miss you. Prayers to your family.

God Bless,
Greg
