Fred, Dan, Barbara, and Anne,
Just heard of Dan's passing ans want to pass along my condolences. It has been a long time, however Big Dan played a part in my childhood serving as a mentor and supporter. I remember plying football ib the back yard of Carolyn Terrace and him running me over! God Bless him and my prayers to you, his beloved family.
