  2. Dear Cindy, Dave, Emily, & Christian,

    So sorry to hear of Cindy’s dad’s passing.

    May you find comfort in the surroundings and blessings of family and friends at this time.

    Love and Prayers to all,

  3. Dear Mrs. Doran and Family,

    Many years ago, my husband, Mike, was a teacher in Greece and Dan was his principal. Mike loved Dan and would always tell me ‘what a good guy’ Dan was. Dan was always there to listen to Mike. All the years that Mike worked with Dan, Dan was part of our household conversation. Mike had so much respect for Dan and he loved him. Waht a great legacy Day left. Unfortunately, Mike can’t tell you all of this becasue Mike has Alzheimer’s disease. Please know that you are in our prayers.

  4. For some moments in life there are no words and this is one of those times. All we can say is how sorry we are. Dan brought so much joy and happiness to our lives, we will never forget him! To the family we pray that you cherish the time you have together and love each other with the same love that Dan had for all of you. He’d want that we’re sure ! Our family sends their condolences also.

  5. It was my pleasureto work with the Hoover Family with Dan at the top. No one will know the closeness and respect that was in the building unless you were there. Any time we needed time off for our family the answer was always yes. One of my fondest memories was at Christmas when Dan gave all of the support staff corsages and candy. We always felt so special. I feel priviledged to have worked with Dan and we still speak of him with love and respect. I’m sorry for your loss.

  6. Mrs. Doran and family,

    With all our love
