The first time I faced you on the basketball court I didn't think you looked that impressive; then you whooped me.  I did not think you looked like a long distance runner, but a couple years later you whooped me on the track.  You had focus.  You had drive.  And I am convinced you had faith in your Savior Jesus Christ, and now see Him face to face.  I'm so honored to have known you.

In memory of Dan -

Receiving the news of Dan's death has brought a great sense of sadness to me today.  Along with Terry Powers, two of my best friends from my high school years have been taken to heaven.  Over the years our paths have crossed occasionally.  I welcomed the updates on Dan's career as an attorney and local politician both from Dan as well as others that we mutually knew in the community.  Earlier this month at a family birthday party for my seven year old twin grandchildren their other grandfather, an attorney, brought Dan's name up (knowing we were both WISCO grads) as his son played youth baseball with one of Dan's sons and he remembered Dan as a "good-guy" coach/father.  I was checking and hoping that you would be attending the reunion.  The Lord had other plans for you.

May God give comfort to your family in these days of sorrow.
