    Deepest prayers and sympathies out to Dan's family on the loss of Dan. A good Deacon, a better man. There was not a moment Dan was not positive, friendly and outgoing to me, whether in church or outside who always was interested in my family and what was going on. Dan was truly a "Deacon's Deacon," in both his investment in the parish, it ministries and its congregation. He will be missed.
