To the family,
I’m so devastated to belatedly hear of Dan passing. So many memories of him flooding back. Jr high/HS days, adventures and misadventures, Marine Corp recruiting office, Williams St., Smith street, standing up for you when you wed Tammy. The births of your kids.The move to Florida with your dog riding shotgun and the ride home alone. Life got in the way and we sadly lost touch. Thought of Dan often and wanted to reach out to him, always missed him. I’m so sorry for your loss.
Rest In Peace Slick
