In our journey we gain a circle of friends. Over time friends will leave and new friends will join the group. Within each group there are strong personalities, easy going personalities, those who sit quietly in the background and those who are a little off centre. All types make the memories we experience and carry with us. Dan was a member of the first group. He made his opinion known and enjoyed sparring with those of opposing opinions. Some found Dan gruff and a little ruff around the edges. Some just didn't like his in your face approach which came out on occasion. To those folks I say you missed out on the fire of a friend that approached life with a bit more passion. I found he could come across sounding tough but he was a very devoted friend to those he called friend. We will miss you good friend. We will have a round of golf and a beer or two on the other side. Till we meet again!!
