Messages of Condolence

  1. I am so very sorry for your loss. Dan was a terrific person and wonderful friend. He had a tremendous influence on my kids and was part of our family too. Even in this tremendous pain, I know to have known Dan was better than to have never known him.

  2. I was filled with great sadness when I received the call about ‘Little Dan’. The memories of our youth, hockey and friendship flooded back. I wish I had some profound words of comfort to offer his family…but all would fall short of healing the pain. So tonight I say a prayer for an old friend & teammate and the loved ones he left behind. Godspeed ‘Hammer’. ~Fred Kinzel.

  3. Katy and Terri, I just wanted to express my sorrow at your loss in this format, as I can’t attend the service. While I did not know Danny well, I appreciate the friendship I have had with Katy for many years and I value all that time. This tragedy is one that I hope can bring the family together and allow all to remember the great times and memories Dan provided. I am truly sad about this and please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you in your time of need.

  4. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Please accept my most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

  5. Please accept our condolences. Fred and I are very shocked as I am sure you all are also. We are so very sorry for your loss. Please know that we are praying for strength and guidance for you and your family during this time. If there is anything at all that we can do for you or your family, please don’t hesitate to alert us. I will make sure to include you and your family in our prayer circle tonight.

  11. I am very sorry to hear of Dan’s passing. The memories of walking home from school together, playing hockey (where he got the nickname Hammer, one of our coaches gave it to him) and everything else we did seems like yesterday. I am very sorry I will not be able to attend the service as we are vacationing and will not be back in time.
    Our prayers go out to Dan’s family, friends and loved ones.

  12. Although no words can help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer.


    All of your friends at Foseco
