Love, Nina Nina , March 28, 2021 Happy Heavenly Birthday, Dan! We miss you tremendously. I hope it’s a grand day up there. I read cheesy stuff and think of you. Give my dad a big hug for me. Love, Nina and family Nina , December 25, 2020 I have been praying to find you. I always love you lil brother.. Rest in piece baby. Dee, September 8, 2020 I have missed my dear uncle for so many years. I was his only niece. I can’t believe this is how we found him. When I was a little girl, he promised he’d be my boyfriend forever. I loved him so much. I miss you, Uncle Mel. I guess you never knew how much. My children will know you even though you’re gone. I love you! Carrie, September 4, 2020 It is sad to hear after close to 30 years that my brother has been missing only to find out about his passing. We are all saddened by this. We’ve always loved him as a brother and an uncle. If I could see him today I would just like to tell him how much I miss him and I love him and wished I could’ve been there for him. Dee Gibson, September 4, 2020 I'm really sad to hear my uncle passed away. It is unfortunate that I'm just now learning of it. I remember he was a lot of fun when I was real little, and the advice he gave me on my graduation day. I'll miss you uncle smellvin! Pat waters, September 2, 2020 It’s hard to believe you’ve been gone for a month, Dan. We miss you. Luke talks about you often and his most prized item is the flag given in your honor. I can only imagine what it’s like for you up there. You finally get to see your brother and I don’t doubt my dad welcomed you. Give him a hug for us. We love you. Nina and family , April 28, 2020 Dan was a wonderful man, with a wonderful attitude, smile, and work ethic. I will miss you - and so will Vegas and all the countries you visited and traveled. :) Congrats on living a great life, seeing the world, and serving your country. Carpe Diem! I know the Good Lord has already embraced you saying "Job well done my son!!" John Lehman, April 15, 2020 Dan, Where did you go? You were too young to leave so soon. I know that God is the only one that makes the calls but, there was a lot more that was left down here for you to do. Looking at it very selfishly, with your passing, I lost my confidence being in front of a computer without being able to have your number in the speed-dial button. Moreover, I lost a friend who to carry a conversation with in front of the World Map in our office. Did we travel virtually or what? Dan, I know that now the computers in Heaven will run perfectly; please do not forget us. We will see you later. Antonio Matarranz, April 7, 2020 The loss of Dan is felt by many. May the memories of his wonderful personality and many contributions be celebrated by all. Dan, you will be missed! Yadira , April 7, 2020 Dan worked for us prior to his death. There aren't enough words to express the loss of Dan. Not just as an employee but our clients loved this kind sweet man. We lost a good friend, but heaven gained a wonderful angel. You will be missed by so many people Dan! Earl and Kathy Hall, April 4, 2020 Dan, I am speechless, you were a great and dear friend and we will miss you dearly. I will always remember your kindness and your warm personality and smile. We liked having you at the office and always felt so secure knowing you would take care of us. I am shocked and sad knowing you are not there to call or text you like we use to at the office. Rest in peace and hope you are in a better place watching over us.
