Dearest Robin and children and grandchildren: my heart is broken for the family. Dan will be missed by all who knew him but most of all his wife Robin. I have fond memories of the day we met the brothers. Dan fell completely head over heels in love with you Robin. He is a good man to his family friends and community. Prayers for strength in the coming days. And to the hope in Christ of seeing each other in heaven. He can now be daddy to your precious Jewel and Dad Palmer can be grandpa to her as well. LOVE. PEACE.
