I just heard of Dan’s passing. He really made such an impression on me, especially his recall ability. He was a special guy and I know I wasn’t always as good a friend as I should have been when we where in scouts together. But he made me a better person because I knew Dan.

I also remember seeing him playing in Westport. We would chat a little between songs and he’d go back to playing.

I often think of Dan and had wondered how he was getting along. I know we are all sad he is gone but we are all richer having known him.
