4/3/16. I realize I'm late posting this about Dan, but felt the need to write something on our Black Bears blog since our 45th reunion is coming up. Ironically the last time I saw and spoke to Dan was at our last reunion 5 years ago.          I didn't know Dan very well during high school years but was able to get to know him better several years later when he visited Tuscaloosa for his guard drill.  I was attending grad school at U of A at that time and ran into him at a club. We talked for a good while and I walked away with the feeling that I wish I had known him better in high school.  Years later--at our 40th high school reunion-- I was able to talk again with him and reminisce about that earlier encounter; we shared  a lot about our personal lives and families over the years since that time we'd run into each other years earlier.  Again I walked away with a very positive feeling about Dan and was very glad we took the time to talk again. We friended on FB and never really talked, but ever so often we would like a post one of us sent. Then, just a few days before Dan died, he posted something on FB that someone had written about the love and blessing of having a son.  I was so inspired that I shared his post on my son's timeline.  I'm grateful to have known Dan and feel lucky to have read and shared one of his last FB posts.   RIP Dan.  You will be missed at our reunion. Sending prayers and healing to you family.

We communicated after our 30th for awhile but not since. I really liked him and saw him for first time since HS.
Great guy, RIP Dan, my friend.
