To Uncle Dan:

You were always a funny and kind Uncle as I was growing up and spending many a day at your house and bike shop on Marietta Street. Working now and then at your bike shop did not pay well so you gave me a bike. All I had to do was fix it up and get it to ride and with your help and encouragement we got it done.

God bless your family as we remember who you were and what you meant to all your family and friends.

My condolences to all your family and friends.

Reg and Laura Gardini
