Dan was such an incredibly nice person and made everyone comfortable around him. I have so many memories of him connected to both Special Olympics and Maine Women's basketball ! My favorite memories of him, though, are of him as a dad. He was so proud of you, Chris, and it was wonderful to see you together. He instilled that art of reaching out to help others without fanfare in you !! My heart aches for both of you, Bernie and Chris ! Dan will be missed by so many !! Praying for peace for you !
