    I was sorry to hear about the death of your Dad. I remember your Dad when our old gang of Stock Boys from K-Mart hung around your house & neighborhood.

    Take Care!

    Dan (The man) was a one of a kind gentleman, friend, and father. Karen & Dan had many happy years together and he will be sadly missed by everyone in our family. He left
    a legacy to his sons and always stood above the crowd. His smiles and laugh always lit up the room. God has another angel who I bet already has his wings! Love ya Danny! Kay

    We know this is a sad time. We all wanted to be there--snow had other ideas... We will be sending a Mass(Mom) and donation to a cause (from us) in honor of Uncle Danny's memory.

    I was saddened to hear the news of Dan's death. I had not seen him in many years--but have such fond memories of such a sweet, kind man. Dan and Rita were great neighbors to all of us in Knollwood--such good people. You will be missed!
