How to express my love for Uncle Dan. This "baby" Carol has a heart full of memories to live on. I miss the love he showed to his sister Marie and Uncle Mac and especially to me.He never aged in my life and neither did I. My tears are for all I missed as the years rolled by. I look forward to seeing Uncle Dan in heaven. Love to all.
