I was so sorry to hear of Dan's passing.  My sympathy to his family.  He was always such a nice guy.

So sorry to hear of Dan's passing.  We spent some happy summers together as kids - swimming in Miller's quarry, swimming in the Hedges Boyer pool, playing baseball, and just hanging out.  I totally lost contact with him after graduation, but I still value the memories.  Rest in peace, my friend.
