It was with a sad heart that I read Dan's obituary in the newspaper. Twenty years ago Dan (and Helen) welcomed us with warmth and thoughtfulness to the Waldorf Condominium, and in the ensuing years we enjoyed many pleasant times together. I feel privileged to have had him for a friend and neighbor. He loved his family dearly, and it is to you that I offer my sincere sympathies. Liz Graham
