Mary, I am Jim Owens ex-wife. I used Aunt Chris as a babysitter for my 2 children and became very fond of Diana and Danny; we had many holidays with Dannys family. So sorry for your loss and give Diana my sympathy and prayers as well to you.

Dear Mary, you are in my thoughts and prayers daily. I love you and Dan very much, and I am going to miss him. You have a friend right down the street if ever you need a thing. Dan always made me laugh, and I am going to miss his goodness. I have right next to me now the push button box that he gave me of Maxine's "deep thoughts." He was such a fun and genuine man.

What fun times we shared on many motorcycle trips with you and Dan. Such a kind and gentle soul who loved his outdoor scenery. He took things slow and easy and enjoyed life. May peace fill your heart along with all of the many wonderful memories you two shared.

Dan was a very creative, very interesting, multi-talented guy. He was a musician, an engraver, did remodeling and home improvements. Everything he did, he did well. Sorry to hear this sad news.

I just got the notice of Dan's passing. I am incredibly sorry for your undeniable loss.
Dan was very generous with his help on some of the renovation of my previous house several doors down from your own.
Besides his help in construction, he had such a genrous heart.
He will genuinely be missed.
