I am so sorry about Dan passing, I knew him along time ago late 60’s-early 70’s. Then I went out West, but I remember the time Dan came out West and we ran into each other. Wow it was so great to see a great friend from St. Thomas again. It is a small world when you really think about it. R.I.P. now Dan, with Jesus loving arms around you now. My condolences to the family at this time.
