    Dear Pat and family. We are so sorry to hear of Dan’s passing. I had lots of long talks with him . His rocks that I have will always be in the best display case at the cabin and here at home. His art work was a love he really enjoyed, Cutting those small pieces was with love and much patience. I don’t think he ever sat for long, he was always busy and helping others at the cabin as well. My deepest condolences to you all .

    Dear Pat and family,
    Dan will never be forgotten. He is that rare combination of strength and gentleness. We always enjoy great conversations (and jokes) with the Prauds, and you set a great example for us all. May the Lord bless you and keep you during this time.
