My sincere condolences for Judy and the family. I had the chance to interact with Dana in the last weeks of his life. He was helping me with a genealogy project. Dana is shrewd, knowledgeable, friendly and caring. He will be missed dearly.

On behalf of all of us from the Comstock family, our condolences for the loss of Dana. He's gone too soon.

He and I had a strong connection in researching our family history.

We remember well when he and Judi came to Forest Park Cemetery in Cook County to unveil new gravestones for some of the Comstock ancestors and then to my mother's birthday party afterward. I'll miss the periodic messages I got from him with a new historical document or news clipping that he had uncovered related to people who were on both of our family trees. He'll be missed.
