Sending our sincere sympathies to all of Dans boys and their families ! He was a great man who not only was a distant neighbour to mom and dad on the farm but later became moms neighbour across the hall at the Vilna lodge ! It was always nice to see and visit with him, dad will especially miss slipping across to catch some kind of sport on TV with Dan when mom decided she was tired ! RIP Dan , you’ve earned your rest !! Hugs to the family
