Janice I’m so very sorry to hear about Dan, he was such a gentle soul that would go above and beyond to help friend and family. I’ve known him and Corey since I was 8 years old, Bev was my grandma’s best friend, Aunt Liz or Aunt Betty, they called her both names. Our Good Lord above gained a true angel too soon. Sending you hugs and keeping you in my prayers. Tracy
