    Dear Ann,
    I only recently found out about your hubby's passing on Facebook. Although I never met him, based on the fact that I've been in a long-term marriage, I know that Dan must have been an amazing person. I am sorry for your loss, and hope to seek you out, maybe in late October when I will be back in Menomonie. My phone number is 202/544-0069. I still have a boatload of stuff to clear out from my father's art studio at the Dunn County History Museum. I hope any changes in your life resulting from Dan's departure are not all unpleasant. <3 -- Jim

    My prayers and thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
    Daniel was a grade school classmate at Elmwood. That was the last time I ever saw him. I can still picture what he looked like back then, even today.
