As we begin to fully realize Dan's death, we want to thank everyone who knew Dan for their love and affection for him, and their warm, overwhelming support for us. From the time he moved to Brainerd, and especially after the accident, Dan was surrounded with friends. We are so grateful to all of you.
Rod Buckingham, thank you for being with Dan so soon after the accident and staying with him so long; Kathi Nagorski, thank you for the timely and personalized article in the Brainerd Dispatch; Shad Korbel, thank you for your unconditional love and friendship; Dan Tufenk and Dan Schilling thank you for your solid support and friendship; all the personnel, from the owners to coworkers, and even the customers of C & L, thank you for holding Dan in such high regard; everyone at American Fitness Center, thank you for providing the place where Dan loved to work out; Cpl. Leroy Ailts, thank you for your compassionate and thorough follow-through of the accident. We were very touched that so many of you found time to attend the services to say goodbye.
From all of you, we learned a great deal more about Dan and his life in Brainerd. Knowing he was happy there helps so much.
Doug, Jane, Sarah, and Bryan Giedt
