Dear Pam, Amy, Tracy, & Lindsay, I'm so very sorry to learn of Dan's passing. I have fond memories of Dan as our bus driver for so many years. His no-nonsense approach was perfect for those long country routes. May good memories and the love of friends and family be a source of comfort - now, and in the days, months, and years ahead. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, and wishing you God's peace. with sympathy, Carrie Little Hess

Dear Pam and Family, So sorry to hear of your loss of Danny. He was a super guy and always had time to share a story or talk about snowmobiles. Will miss seeing him at the snowmobile swap meet / drags in Douglas next year, promised him a steak sandwich so I guess I'll have two in his memory.. Hope all the wonderful memories will find you comfort. With Sympathy. Joel and Shari (Mork) Messmer, Rochester, MN
