Condolence & Memory Journal


Oh so many Memories Of Dan, We would sit back Listen to good 60`s Music and have a few beers, seems so long ago now. I really miss him He was the Best friend I ever had in Appleton area. I am not from here I am a Originally from upper Michigan I met Dan around the year 2000 we hit it off right away. I was going to his house Wednesday Morning Must have been the 3rd of August I had moved further away and did not visit as often as I once did and I saw the picture and not on the door and could not believe what I just read. I could not believe it I really Loved Dan he was a man I still brag about his Kindness to people to this very Day. We live in a World filled with fear no days but being around Dan you would think it was still the Hippe days. I will never forget him and lost track of his Brother and Mother some time afterwards I never did visit his gravesite as I have no idea where it is. To John you remember me and Tom too met me a few times I hope to hear from you all some day have a very pleasant life Dan was just a little misunderstood but he really knew how to be real.
