    I’m really sorry I can not attend the Services and Honors for Dan. It makes it hard to travel with three active dogs. If Kathy were still alive I would be there now. Having family and clise friends there really helps you get through this time. Having Tim and Terry here when Kathy passed was a godsend.

    My prayers and thoughts will be with you.

    I have so many wonderful memories of Dan. I especially love when he would laugh during card games. Dan was great at cards and if you could fool him, you could make him laugh. Dan could also say the right thing when I needed advice or comfort. I love you all. I am thinking about you and praying for you.

    Marilyn, I am very sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts.

    Oh, Marilyn, Carl & Amy, & Missy…..just opened the paper this evening. Oh, my gosh…..so shocked at the news. Always loved working with Dan at the Bremer office. He was our “gentle giant”! May God hold you in His arms and the happy memories you’ve collected over the years sustain you.

    My condolences to your family on the loss of Dan. I worked with Dan for several years and I got to know him when working on the digital maps for USDA FSA. I remember days when he was frustrated with the new software but he always had a positive personality and loved his work. He will be missed by so many.
    Sincerely
    Karen Kohlmeyer Rawson
