  1. Oh how I will miss his orneryness. He was always giving me a hard time. He was fun loving and always had a comeback. Dan, my days at Walmart will just not be the same without you at the front door.


  2. I just looked for him at church today. I was so happy to see him at church the last few weeks, and enjoyed giving him hugs. I enjoyed his smile at Walmart too. I will miss him,…
