  2. So sorry! Wish we would have seen you again. You’ll be remembered forever.

  3. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8 So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.We love you Dan and Rest In Peace
