Ann and Family,

It is with heart felt sympathy that I write this message; Dan is the most amazing person I can say that I've met in my life. He is an amazing boss and friend. I can remember every lesson he taught me not just about the ins and outs of pharmacy life, but about kindness, service, and caring for people. I grew up in the College Hill Pharmacy family and I'm proud of that! He will be greatly missed. It saddens me that I wasn't able to attend the viewing to say my goodbyes, but I hope to visit with you soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Love, Kelly
