    Kathy, Andy & family,
    My heartfelt sympathy to you as you deal with Dan’s passing. I’m so sorry it happened during unforeseen times and how difficult that must have been. I understand the loss and void that’s left, it certainly is tough at times. God bless you as you carry on and remember all the happy times your family has shared.
    Sincerely Pam Dauner
