Uncle Dan, you were a great man! When my dad left, you took his place. You have taught me so much. I believe my mechanical ability has come from you taking the time to teach me a trade. I remember long nights in the garage working on cars with you. You will really be missed. I love you uncle Dan, until I see you again.
