Debra, We want to take this opportunity to thank you and Dan for being such gentle and wonderful souls. You both were instrumental in bringing us back into the loving arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Dan showed us how to boldly walk with the Lord while remaining a humble servant both to our Savior and to those around him. We will make a donation to his beloved Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. Certainly Dan’s heart is in line with the love of Saint Vincent, and please know that Josie and my love and prayers are with him and you. God Bless Eric and Josie

Debra - I'm saddened to hear of Dan's passing. I actually met you first at MCTC in 1979 (remember we both went down to get physicals together, your second tenure there as I recall)and met Dan shortly thereafter (he worked for John Brewer). I can't recall the last time I saw him but believe it was shortly before I left in 1997. Anyway, I'll always remember the good times we had working and kinda growing up together......may God give you His peace at this most difficult time.

Debra, I am so sorry for your loss. We all met in 1974 at Marley. I remember Dan so well as a tall but gentle man. My memories of Dan are all positive. As Joe wrote, they include fun and hard work. My sympathy to you, Debra, and your family from me and my family here in Bowling Green, KY.
