    Beth & Family, I am so sorry to hear about Dan. I have had the opportunity to work with many fine Investigator's but Danny was one of the very best. While at SP Henrietta he was assigned to MarketPlace Mall in the beginning and did such a good job that when he left we replaced him with two. He simply was one of the best and fun to work with. All of you are in my prayers.

    Dan will always be remembered for his warm smile. He was genuine and always thought of others. My children and I have wonderful memories of vacations with Dan. Dan was one of the 'good guys', taken too soon. Beth, you and Nick are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Meg, Janeace, Elan, John Stephen and Marisa
