    Dear Jane and family-We were so sad to read of Dan’s passing in today’s D&C. Though we have lost touch in the last few years, we have such wonderful memories of having you as next door neighbors. There were so many good stories shared over the back fence with Dan. We always knew when he was out enjoying the patio as his fragrant cigar smoke wafted over our way! He was a lovely man with a charming sense of humor as evidenced by his smile in the photo. His passing will leave a big hole in the hearts and lives of so many. Please know that you are all in our hearts and prayers. We wish you peace. Laura & Al Swett
