    You are in my thoughts and prayers. My sympathy to you all. I have many wonderful memories of Danny. Most of them from when he worked with Grandpa Vernon at the farm. His sense of humor was priceless, as was his laugh. He was a hard-working, sweet, caring and honest man. We are all blessed by having him in our lives. God Bless you all.

    I knew Dan for a few years in Valley City and took over the rural bus route he drove for a number of years. Dan drove a route of up to 150 miles a day, I believe. (It’s quite a bit shorter now with fewer people on farms.)

    Dan was a great person to be around–wonderful sense of humor and a contagious laugh. It was so good to see him and Barbara always happy together.

    So long to a good loving man.
