I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Dan. He was a great part of the PRES family. I enjoyed talking with him and hearing many stories about him growing up. Mr. Dan was a joy to have on the 5th grade Manatee trip! Your family is in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

I would like to send my sympathy to Dan's family. I knew Dan from the NCLEOA. Dan was very kind and thoughtful - we will miss his homemade apple pies. Dan was also eager to help with building and range repairs, and he always delivered on his promises.
