Mary,

I just today learned of Dan's passing. I'm truly sorry for your loss. To me Dan always seemed like a man's man. He stood tall (figuratively speaking LOL) for what he believed and took full responsibility for any wrong doing. He was always my go-to guy when we needed to squeeze another load into the Transwood schedule. All I had to do was ask him to work his magic and BOOM it was done.

Dan and I shared a similar equine background (we complained about it a lot) and loved the people involved. We had many lunch time conversations discussing the successes the two of you shared in the show ring.

It was a privileged to call him a friend. I appreciated his down home, laid back attitude towards life. Yea, he'd get excited from time to time but overall he was solid as a rock. He was a creature of habit. He always drove a black Chevy truck and of course always had a dog named Rin.

Please accept the condolences of the entire Hydrite Chemical Company family. He will be missed.

Kind regards,

Steve Olson - Hydrite Logistics

Mary, I'm very sad about Dan's passing. . . .he was a co-worker for many years, but more than that, he was a friend. I loved the way you always knew where you stood with Dan, and he told you exactly what he was thinking. At the same time, he was a very caring & compassionate man, and he offered me lots of comforting words during Cindi's illness & passing. It's a big loss to you & all of your family & friends, and I know he'll be dearly missed. My thoughts & prayers are with you.

Sorry to hear about Danny. We spent 12 years together in school. He was a close friend and we spent nights together at each others house. I talked to him last fall and he told me about his health problems. I told him to hang in there and be strong and keep fighting.
I will keep his family in my prayers.

I first met Mary and Dan when I worked at the Diesel Truck Driving School. I went to their wedding, stayed friends LONG after moving on to other employment. We raised and showed horses together, laughed and cried together, and have been life long friends. Dan was truly a 'great man' and he was definitely Mary's soulmate. See you Saturday Mary. God Bless.

I won't forget his deadpan humor. The man was hysterical but never cracked a smile. I really enjoyed his company.

Wayne, I want you to know they I am thinking about you and pray for you to have the strength that God gives to those in times of grieve. I icould not have made it without God's hand in mine.
I want your family to know that you are one of the most caring neighbors I have. Wayne comes to my aid for whatever the need may be. I am handicapped and it means so much to have him nearby. He has mailed the cord to my electric scooter to me in Texas when I forgot it, come to clean up where my carpet after the dog had an accident and much more. HE and Danny were cerainly alike ans Wayne is always building something.
Your family is being prayed over here in TN. God be with each of you. God bless you!.
