    Harold and Diana, I was shocked to learn of the Faye’s passing. My fond memories was when Dan was stationed at Ft. Fisher. Helping with the events, carrying all the supplies in a laundry basket. That was funny. So sorry I didn’t stay more in touch. Thought about all of often. May God grant you comfort, peace and love.
