My husband, Dan, was also diagnosed around the same time as Danny Boy and we shared many emails on the OCF and privately. I am orginally from Maryland and we shared some Wisconsin cheese and Crab Soup via mail. What an uplifting spirit Danny leaves with us all. Danny fought such a courageous battle and I know he sits with God and understands it all now. I will be praying for you, Danny's family, for comfort, strength and the peace that Danny suffers no more. Love, Debbie Domer

To the family of Dan Bogan: My sympathy to you as you mourn the passing of your beloved husband/father. May he live on in your lives through memories of good times and bad, and through words that you will hear him say [in your mind]. I pray for you, Dan's family, that your mourning will guide you through this painful time of loss. I pray that you do not hold it inside, but that you find the space to let go and be sad that he is no longer here at your side. I am sorry that I am not able to attend the service, but please know that you are in my heart as I think of you all constantly. I know Dan is near, watching over you with a smile. Love sent to you, Karol Niemann
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I moved out to Az 35 years ago. Evertime I came back to Wis. I looked up my best friends. Dan was one of them. We all met at a local bar talked about the good old days growing up and the good days that are still going on. We all had a good time. After hearing of Dan's cancer,I was shocked. I did however get one last good time with my friend. Dan and Gary MIller came out to AZ to play golf with me. We had a great time. Dan will be missed. I know I'll never forget him.
Lowanne Brokaw left a message on April 6, 2009:
Dan was such a special guy. My husband was diagnosed with oral cancer at almost the same time as Dan. His wit and encouragement helped both of us through the treatment and me when Jack died. I have so many of his emails saved and also many of his postings to the oral cancer web site. God bless.

Jerry Wilck left a message on April 6, 2009:
Dear Maggie, Marcee and Chris, I learned of Danny's passing while in South America during my vacation. The email from Maggie came as a shock, although I had known that Danny's time was quickly approaching. Although we had never met, my connections with "Danny Boy" through OCF were ones that I will never forget. The warmth, caring and knowledge that he so freely shared with those of us in need, showed what a unique person he was. We shared many email forwards and whenever I got one from him, I knew I was in for a good laugh. Whenever I speak to my fellow dentists about the importance of "early detection" I will continue to be inspired by my special friend, "Danny Boy". My heartfelt condolences to the 3 of you and the rest of those that loved and knew Dan. I take comfort in knowing that he no longer is suffering. Jerry

I met Danny Boy through the Oral Cancer Foundation website and had the privledge of meeting him in person in Las Vegas, Sept. 2004. My husband is also dieing from tonsil cancer mets. Danny was such an inspiration to everyone but in the last few months he had been sending me personal emails to help my husband and I through this difficult time. I will truly miss him. My only happiness is knowing he will be there to greet my husband when his time comes. My prayers are with all the family and friends of Danny, but especially to Marcee whom Danny spoke of in hopes of consoling me. Love to you all, Lorie Cornelius

I will miss you Dan, but I will always have the memory of you in my heart. I had the best of times working with you at Riverside Paper and golfing at Countryside. I'll be looking forward to the day that you and I will have an order of onion rings together. I'll miss you Danny Boy. I guess God needed a golf partner.
Ed Brown left a message on April 6, 2009:
I offer my sincerest condolences to the Bogan family. Though the journey has been tumultuous, the hearts that have been touched, the joys shared and the greatest of memories that shall linger forever will always be the legacy of the greatest of men, Danny Bogan. May God comfort all of you and fill your hearts with love. My life has been enriched from the mere crossing of our paths. Rest in peace my dear friend, Danny.

Dan: I knew you when you lived across from my parents home on Dennison St., Appleton. I knew you when you worked at K&R which my best friend Buz Brownell owned. I lost my beautiful wife"Linda"recently and I would ask you to contact her in heaven. She was your age and went to school with you. Her former name was Linda Locke. Also, say high to Buz for me and tell him we all love & miss him. Love, David & "Linda in Spirit." Meyer

It is with tremendous pain and sadness that I hear of Danny Boys passing. Danny was one of the most courageous and compassionate persons I have ever met. In spite of his extreme trials with his cancer and recurrence, he was always there to lend a helping hand and an encouraging word. He touched many lives on the Oral Cancer Foundation forum and I am sure elsewhere as well. He was a rare person in the modern world. He certainly touched me and will always remain in my heart. He had a rare gift of mercy and will be sorely missed from the forum. Danny and I had become close friends in the past 3 years as I was a mere 6 months ahead of him, with the same cancer, and one of the first to reach out to him. But I can tell you, that I learned far more from Danny than anything I could have taught him. If he was frightened by it, he never showed it. He fought the good fight with an acceptance, integrity and quality that we can all learn from. He sent me all of his scan reports and we knew from the beginning that it was going to be an uphill fight. He rarely ever mentioned the pain and quality of life issues or complained about it in private and never publicly. He leaves behind a beautiful and loving family of which my wife, I and many others of you, had the pleasure to meet in Las Vegas. He deeply loved his family and fought with all his might to be with them as long as he could. He was equally and unselfishly concerned for their quality of life as well. Another light, in our lives, has been extinguished by this horrible disease. I am sure that he is in heaven now praying for all of us.

Danny So you have reached the end of a very long and hard journey. I'm so proud that you allowed me an insight into your world and privileged that you called me a friend. May your God take you by the hand and set your spirit free.
Barbara Boland left a message on April 6, 2009:
I am so sorry that Dan lost his battle, but I want to assure you that we have not lost the war. Dan and I were diagnosed around the same time and I will not give up my efforts to increase rates of early detection and Dan's spirit will be a great source of motivation for me. Although I only had the pleasure of meeting Dan and Marcee once in Virginia at the Oral Cancer Foundation Walk, he is unforgettable and he will be missed. I will proudly carry on the fight in his name. love, Barb (Bobbi) Boland

Sheldon Sax left a message on April 6, 2009:
Dear Bogan Family, It was with great sadness that I learned of Dan's passing today. For me, and other oral cancer sufferers, Dan has been a constant source of light, courage and comfort. When first diagnosed with this disease, I posted a message on the Oral Cancer Foundation message board. Dan was the first person to write back, offering calm, wisdom and excellent practical advice. I witnessed time and time again, how helpful and loving Dan was to everyone with whom he communicated, and particularly to people newly stricken with this cancer. Meeting Dan and his wonderful family in Las Vegas was an opportunity to appreciate Dan in person. His smile, charm, sense of humor and love for people and life were so clearly evident. He exemplified Will Roger's saying "there are only two kinds of people; friends, and friends I've yet to make". I will greatly miss him. At last, though, he is at peace. May God bless him. My heartfelt condolences to the Bogan family. With best regards, Sheldon

Danny Boy, The pipes have called and at last you are free. You have been a great inspiration for me, as we travelled this similar highway for almost the same length of time. And you were always so giving of your spirit and knowledge to all of us at OCF. A truly wonderful and caring person, I am glad to have known you. As you always said, "Love Ya". Meredith
Dan Zuleger left a message on April 6, 2009:
Dan, It is tough to find words that make any sense. I'm sorry that this dreaded disease has taken you far too early, but I do trust that you are truly in a better place. Thank you for your sense of humor and all the great e-mails you passed along. I'm sorry we never got a chance to tee it up in Nashville....you would have loved it. Thanks for being my partner in many golf events....you were a great competitor and always good company my friend......I think of you everytime I have an 80 yard shot to the green. "IN sunshine or in Shadow" God Bless you and your family.
Kim Sievers left a message on April 6, 2009:
My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time of great sadness. I know I am one of thousands that Danny Boy touched on the OCF's website. I only wish I had met him in person. His inspiring and caring words were and have been of great comfort to my family during my father's illness. God Bless your entire family during this time of great sorrow. We will miss you Danny Boy.
John Novotny left a message on April 6, 2009:
I met Danny through the Oral Cancer foundation and he was one of the most inspirational person that helped me through my battle with tonsil cancer. I will truly miss his encouragement and disposition. My very sincer regrets to the family who I'm sure received a lot more of this than I.
Kris Sikas left a message on April 6, 2009:
Dear Maggie, Marcee and Chris: Mark and I just returned from vacation and were deeply sadden to receive news of Dan's passing. Although we knew it was coming we continued to lift him up in prayer. After meeting Danny Boy on the OCF forum it was one of the highlights of my life to meet all of you in Las Vegas. Through Danny you all became family to those of us at OCF! As Danny said, "it's a bastard of a disease" but he passed on so much love and compassion to people through that website and we were all blessed to be one of his friends. He will be greatly missed. - Kris and Mark Sikas
