lately ive been missing my grandfather very much. he was great man,and im sad that my brother never got to meet him. funny thing is jase was born the same year he died. actually its very sad. I feel like me and grandpa had a very special bond. when I was younger we used to sit on the couch together and he would sing and teach me german songs. when my grandma and I would visit him in the nursing home (a lot) he always gave me a chocolate bar out of a big bin he had at the bottom of the dresser, that was our little secret from grandma katie s. johns, November 21, 2013 we all loved my grandpa very much and will never forget him no matter what happens. i love you grandpa! Katelyn johns, March 10, 2012 People call him Vietnam Vet, War Hero, Sgt Major, American Hero and Dan, but to me he was Dad or Daddy when we were hurt or needed him. My dad has provided me with so many memories that I will cherish forever. But more importantly, he has given me six brothers and sisters, wonderful brother and sister in-laws, special aunts and uncles, countless nieces and nephews, a loving mother, and two of the most outstanding children a person could ask for and for that I will always be grateful. I don't think I could find the right words to say how full he made my life or what an important part of it he was. My heart aches daily for what we didn't get to share, but I have all my families' faces to look into and see a part of him to help ease the pain. I love you Daddy and pray that you rest in peace knowing that you did an excellent job with your family and friends. Danette Marie Hess, November 26, 2008 My Dad will be greatly missed by everyone who knew and loved him. I will treasure our memories and our families memories always. He will never be forgotten. We love you Dad. Donna Elaine Anderson, November 25, 2008 Our Dad was the greatest Dad anyone could ask for. I will never forget the love, caring and support he gave to his children and grandchildren. He will always be in my memories and in my heart. I love you Dad and will miss you. Deanne Redick, November 25, 2008 It always seemed so wonderful to me that Dan Sr., the big tough Marine, could so gently hold a newborn baby in his Popeye arms. (Those were some big muscles!)The first time I saw him with those arms deep in soapy water doing the dishes in my house I was amazed. I was amazed when I saw him playing ring-around-the-rosie with the three-year-old kids in my backyard and delighting the kids with other games like round ball. Thanks for being so good to me and Dan and Jackie and Katie for all of those years. Love, Dotti Dotti Miserany, November 25, 2008 "Everything I Own" "Is there someone you know, You're loving them so, But taking them all for granted. You may lose them one day, Someone takes them away, And they don't hear the words you long to say" David Gates (Bread) wrote this song when I was a teenager about his father who recently passed away. I think of my father now and how these words resonate with me. He was away for extended periods of time serving his country, but he did his best to make sure we got the best of him when he was with us. I only wish I told him thank you more often than I did. My father was special to me and I will miss him very much. Dan Miserany Jr., November 21, 2008 My Grandpa and I had an amazing bond from the beginning, he and my grandma brought me home from the hospital. My grandpa was always someone I could count on. He spent countless hours watching my softball games and always carried my bag for me when we were done. Being that I was born on the Marine Corps Birthday my 10th birthday was amazing, my present from him was an invite to the Ball. I was his date and he showcased me the whole night. He spent many times picking me up from school and taking me to Ice Cream. I will Truly miss him, his smile and those ears of his. I love you and miss you grandpa and I keep the Miserany Family in my thoughts and Prayers.... I love you Grandpa Nikole Hess, November 20, 2008 We will miss you Grandpa. Love you! Jackie Miserany, November 17, 2008 I'll always cherish my memories of my grandfather as a happy, vibrant and loving person, building sandcastles on the beach and hiding Easter eggs in the backyard. I feel blessed to have known him, and I hope to pass on his infectious optimism to all the Miseranys who have yet to come. I love you, Grandpa! I hope that your heaven is full of classic westerns, great golf courses and an endless supply of pecan pie. Katie Miserany, November 16, 2008 Our thoughts and prayers are with each and every one of Dan's loved ones and family. We was'nt around Dan awhole lot, but from what we knew of him he was a very thoughtful, intelligent and caring person. God Bless all of you. Bill and Linda Weaver Linda K Weaver, November 16, 2008 Dan was my buddy...he always called me Tennis instead of Tanis and said " you are my favorite sister-in-law" which I responded and said" I'm your only sister-in-law, we always had a laugh. Dan loved food and chocolate eclairs is what him and I loved to have together. One of us was always stopping at Perkins and bringing them home.When it came to food Dan always finished a meal off by saying "now that hot the spot" I will miss Dan and all the fun times we had.He was a great man and deserved all the respect in the world. God Bless You and Yours.Thank you for your service to our country. Tanis Edwards, November 16, 2008 Sorry for your loss. We all loved Uncle Dan very much and know he is happy in Heaven with God and you will see him again someday. Our prayers are with you. Love, Andrea, Ryan, Ethan, and Maria. Andrea and Ryan Crosley, November 16, 2008 Daniel was loved so very much for our ten years together. Jennifer Sue Miserany, November 15, 2008
