Our deepest condolences. may the memories and experiences that you enjoyed with your father and hunting partner serve to assuage the anguish of this horrific moment in your lives. Our thoughts and concerns are with you and your family and other relations. I know that tears will swell in my eyes when we meet at the curling club. Sincerest regards. Dick and Dona Henderson

Dear Mary Ellen and family, I just heard about Danny's passing. I am so sorry. What a great guy he was.....we all thought that especially mom and dad. They were a good judge of character. I know this is a devastating loss for you and your family and friends. Just the other day Ken and I were driving home from Rosslyn and as we passed your home I thought, " I wonder what Danny and Mary Ellen are up to?" So very sorry for all of you as I know you have lost a great person.

Mary Ellen, Justin & Jackie,
I was saddened to hear about Dan's passing. When I think about Dan I think of how devoted he was to you all. His children were the centre of his universe and it showed from all the pictures of him hunting, fishing, and camping.
I have many fond memories of him through the years, especially when it came to having Jackie in our unit. I will never forget the weekend that we were camping out at the boy scout camp, and we couldn't get the pilot light working in the main hall (I believe) so my mom (Patti) decided we would call you guys up to get your help. Out came Dan with Jackie in tote (I think he dropped everything for use, but that was Dan) he lit the pilot with no questions asked and we had a good chuckle over it. I remember Jackie asking if she could stay, and of course we couldn't say know. It was that night that Jackie joined us again as a Junior Leader.
Dan will be sadly missed by many people. Sending you all my love and prayers and virtual hugs.
