Dan's Family: We were sad to see Dan's pic and obit. He was a classmate of mine. Many memories of that big ole smile that was contagious after he told one of his jokes. We all end up with that big ole smile on our face then too. One more ride with that big ole bus in the sky. Enjoy your trip Dan....You will be missed. Keep an eye on all your old buddies. Lord knows we need it. Lee Hinderman - Class of 1971
