Dan,

I was lucky enough to spend 21 weeks with you in the academy that started July 16th, 2007. Seems like a lifetime ago.

We all called you old man, even though you weren't the oldest in the class. It was our way of showing you we loved you. You were a great friend, and a great man. I hope and pray our paths cross again one day.
