DICK, Would you please share our sadness with Dan's passing Oct. 5th? Following a beautiful day he surprised all with a massive brain hemorrhage which his strong heart survived for three more days... Please say howdy to him during next reunion. I know he will hear! We so enjoyed seeing all each year and felt blessed knowing all! Our love, DAN UP & BEYOND Kathy, Chad, Lans & Caryn
