Condolence & Memory Journal

Anita and family, I was so sorry to hear of Dan's passing. I would to be there to give you each a hug. I thought very highly of Dan and I think so much of Anita. You two are my favorite couple in our church because of the knowledge you both have of Christ and the faith you have always shown. You were both great teachers in church. I appreciated all the support you two always soaed and gave to me when I was working in the church! My mother loved working with Dan for all those years at the Post Office. He always told me Everytime I saw him your mother is the best cookie cook in the world! I remember one time Dan and Jacky brought mother a sack of sugar and a sCk of flour and said you haven't brought cookies in a while so we thought we would help you out with the ingredients! Mother told me " well that was a subtle hint". She love baking cookies so that was a great honor for her! Your Dan was a great man! God got a good one on Saturday night! I love you all and May the Lord Bless and keep you all❣
