    Hi Heather, Just a note to let you know you are in my thoughts. I always read all the obituaries in the Daily News and when I read your Dad’s I knew that you were his daughter. It helped that I remembered your little boys names and now I see you have a girl. Good going!!!!!!!!!!! Take care. June ( you do remember me right?) I remain an “old” Trufant bank teller. :)

    Heather I can remember the first time I met your Dad. He certainly was your greatest fan and thought you walked on water. I am sorry to hear that he has passed and hope that you are comforted by the memories you have with him.

    To Dan’s family, I am so sorry to hear that Dan lost his fight. My first memories of Dan were way back in grade school when he used to sing on the school bus. So many years later we chatted while he sang at Holland Guitar and at parties I attended. His love for music grew as did his talent. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. My the Lord give you healing and peace during this difficult time. Debbie Letts friend and Senior Account Executive at WSCG Radio
