Dear Randee, I am so sorry for the loss of Dan. He was such a great guy. I wake up every night thinking about our younger years and the great memories that we had. When we played password and the guys thought we cheated when I said dearest and you replied darling. Tonight Bob and I were talking about Dan and what a great guy he was and I think Bob said it all when he said Dan never had a bad word to say about anyone and always had a smile on his face. I know you do not do the computer but am hoping a family member will share this with you. Love, Rita and Bob

Dear Schmanskis, and Mary & Helen, Very saddened to hear of Dan's illness and passing. I'm a first cousin to Hank and Della's children. My mother, Eleanor Szymanski Wrzesinski, was Hank's younger sister; and, as children, we always enjoyed visiting when in Menasha. Uncle Hank was my godfather; and Aunt Della faithfully remembered me on my birthday and at Christmas. Regards and best wishes to all.

Dear Randee and Sons, I was so saddened to hear about Dan's cancer and death. I have been thinking about you for weeks!! Losing your spouse and father is so very, very sad and difficult. Happy memories help sustain us in the difficult heartbreaking days and weeks. So try to focus on the happy times you all had with Dan. I want to meet you for dinner some evening. I have been thru this and it helps to talk to someone who truly understands how empty and hollow your heart feels. I will continue to pray for your healing and strength as you walk thru these very sad times in your life. God Bless you all, Marilyn Bohman
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
