Dear Family,
Please accept my thoughts and prayers on Dan’s passing.  He was always smiling and warm whenever mom needed help with something at the store.  I remember his mom and dad yelling to Dan.  Can you help?  He’d ask how we were doing in school etc.  I hadn’t seen Dan in years but always asked about him.  RIP Dan.

I grew up with Dan in Waverly.  We were in Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Little League together.  During summers we could be found at the Lincoln Street ball diamond playing a pick up game of baseball with other kids our age.  We lost touch over the years.  I will always remember his impish grin.  RIP Dan.

My sincere and deepest condolences Tim, Kathy and Daniel. I am also sorry to read about Patty passing as well. It has been decades since I have worked at the store. It gave me the opportunity to work with your family and many fine people from the community.
Your family owned business helped many people support their families and come to know the people of the valley on a first name basis.
Death is always hard on a family, but it does give us time to get together and remanence a little. My thoughts go with your family.
