Aunt Linda, Mom called last night to tell me that your dad died. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Keep your chin up and remember you and I have one more thing in common now. Just keep thinking about all the wonderful memories that you have. That is what I do. Talk to you soon. I love you. Love Pam

My condolences go out to all the family, my cousins. Dan was my favourite uncle and also my godfather. He gave me my first paying job. I also drove tractor for him one summer, and that is where I earned my first $50. I very much enjoyed spending the time with him and wish I could have heard some stories from him in his later years. Sorry I could not be there but my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

In all my years I have never forgot Dan. He taught me how to drive a truck, that had no brakes, he gave me my first rollie and my first taste of beer. Most of all he gave me a part of proton-hard work and fun. thanks Dan John Kelly
