Dan was a kind, generous, funny, smart, talented, fair, and inspirational person. Thank you, Dan, for your humor and appreciation for puns, which are, by far, the highest form of humor. It take a fine mind to edit errors automatically.
The world lost you too soon and my prayers and promise to forever watch out for Eddie will continue. What a beautiful love story that unfolded...
Thank you for your service, and I am so sorry that we can’t turn back time and change what happened. You deserved better.
