My thoughts are with Dan and his family. He was always so kind and hilariously funny. I met him the very first day of 7th grade and loved him ever since. Especially after finding out that Willy was his Dad. I went to Woodcrest elementary and was a huge fan of his. I thought he was so much like his Dad always smiling, laughing, funny and such a sweet and kind personality. I am so very sorry. I will keep him in my heart always.

Words cannot adequately express our sorrow in the loss of Dan. Someone so special can never be forgotten. May you find comfort in happy memories and in the words from our heavenly father Jehovah found at Isaiah 25:8; “He (God) will swallow up death forever. And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces“ and Rev 21:4  “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends.

I grew up practically from day one right across 84th Avenue from Dan (mom had me a month before Gloria had Dan!). I will forever be grateful for the tremendous laughter he would exude just being around us, and how much his athletic activity influenced my maintaining a competitive edge about me while participating in sports. I will sorrowfully miss this man. My sincerest condolences to his family, also great friends of the Hannah's.

I am so sorry for your loss. I having so many fond memories of growing up on 84th Avenue. I was never blessed enough to have brothers, but I could imagine what it felt like having Kelly as my friend. Cherish the memories. If there is anything I can do, please don't hesitate to call me. The Skajewski's were such a BIG part of my childhood.
