"What a nice picture of Dan! I had seen last week where Dan had been in the Newton hospital and in visiting with my Dad found out he was not doing well, thus I have been praying for him daily. I do not know his time of meeting our Lord and Savior but he was on my heart heavily Friday night, as I could not sleep, so I believe the Lord was interceding. He was a very sweet cousin who always had a big smile for me. He will be missed. Sorry we will not be able to attend the visitation or funeral, we are out of town. Our thoughts and prayers go to all of Dan's family."
