To our best friend whom we love with all our heart.  We have so many great memories starting when we moved in next door. Dan and Sandy tried to plant a tree as a fence (we teased) they kept dying.  George told them years later he went out at night and peed on them. He was the Best man at our wedding much better than George.  We could always count on him to take care of our cat at least the feeding part. He let the other end up to Sandy. The stories we could tell from the trips we took from mud bugging excursion in Hawaii to visiting the Vatican.  Dan and George would go on about football for hours, when it came to the Michigan/Ohio State games there was a wee bit of rivalry.  Dan will be missed but will always be remembered with love and live on in our hearts.
