Val & Brad, I am so sorry for your loss. Really nice photo tribute to your dad - so many memories in all those old photos of the Lawn Street house. Love the pic of you (Val) on the couch in the blue/green top where he is gazing down at you. Treasure those memories. Love, JB.

I am very sorry for the family of Dan in this time of his loss. I met Dan in the early 1980's when I went to work for him at his overhead door business. He was a great person to know and work for and he treated everyone with respect and kindly. As far as I am concerned you could not meet a nicer guy than Dan. Heaven has definitely gained another angel. Rest in peace my friend.
