    My sincere condolences go out to the family at this difficult time.  Dan was a good man who always showed me love and understanding.  I appreciate the love he always spoke of and demonstrated for his wife.  I am reminded of a song I learned of as we said goodbye to Naomi almost 10 years ago— “Away Down the River” by Allison Krauss.  I can’t help but think of Dan and Naomi as I listen to this song.  May the thought bring you comfort.


    I’m just away down the river

    A hundred miles or more

    Crossing over Jordan

    To the other shore

    I’ll be standing waiting

    With all who’ve gone before

    I’m just away down the river

    A hundred miles or more

    with Love,  Denise Bonds-Foster

    Sympathies to Darlene and all of Danny's family.  Ed Weber would have been there to welcome Danny to that special place prepared by Jesus for him.  Ed and Danny worked together at Deere's, and we even got together a time or two.  God's special blessings on all of you.
