    Dear Donna, you and your family have been through so much. I am so sorry for the passing of your dear husband. Though we know he is with his Lord and Savior, I know it will be a tough time for a while. Be kind to yourself and take things easy and know we are all praying for you.

  3. We are praying for you and your family. Dan will surely be missed by all who had the chance to know him. We are here for you if you need anything, don’t hesitate to reach out.

  4. Dear Donna and Family,
    We are so sorry to hear about Dan’s passing. We a loved him; he was such a great friend. Bruce will miss his phone conversations very much. Bruce enjoyed his time working with him at VVWRA. He was certainly the best Plant Supt that Bruce worked with by far. Good times remembered and then it all went downhill after he left.
    We all remember that special Christmas we all shared that one year with the German exchange students. We all are glad we got to spend that time with you both that year.
    Our condolences to your family and hoping for good memories to carry you through this difficult time.
    Bruce, Linda Nick and Alex Correia
