Debby and Carry,  my heart goes out to you.. I have so many funny memories about Dana and I in school.  Do you remember that time in first grade a boy Craig kept kissing me…. Dana asked me why I was crying at recess… he said show me this boy.  Dana walked right over and punched him in the nose.  I never got kissed again but poor Dana took the heat at the principal office.  He was a kind person with a sweet soul.  He will be missed

Debby, Carey, Jersey, Wyatt, & your whole family,
My heart aches for all of you. Dana was a good guy, funny & kind. He sure loved Jersey & Wyatt a lot; his eyes lit up when he talked about them. He loved the rest of the family too, especially his Mom. He helped me out a lot doing some odd jobs, never complaining if they were yucky jobs. He will be missed by many for many reasons.
May you find comfort in the love of family and friends at this difficult time. Love and prayers to you all.

Dana was one of a kind.  If you ever got the privilege of meeting Dana you definitely would remember him.  I hadn't seen Dana in years but as soon as I seen this I instantly thought of his big warm smile and kindness.  He had a heart of gold like his parents.  May God continue to hold you in his arms.
