Nilles Family - Very sorry to hear of Dan's passing. I'm also sorry it took me so long to become aware of it. I think Dan was likely a better friend to everyone than many of them were in return. We're all thinking of you at this time. - David Gran

Nilles Family - for some unknown reason today I looked up the Daily Freeman Journal online (I've never done that) and saw the news of Dan's passing. I have wonderful memories of your family from MANY years ago. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Dan was a great guy. (Debbie Boyington Ewing)
