So many people want to do this, but don't...and now I know why (it's HARD)! My father and I sat down to write stories from his life.

He has Stage IV cancer, so the pressure was on to get it done! It's heartfelt and bare-bone, but we did it.

There are people who can write and there are people who can do. The world needs both. Thank you for taking the time to read a slice from Dan's life. He's treasured by many.

I can hardly wait to get my own copy. Excellent job, Trace. Your Dad is so proud of his family, and with good reason. Look forward to reading this again. Great pictures too! Love you.

What a precious treasure for you and your amazing family. Couldn't be prouder of your courage and strength; at times when most would rather burry their heads, and not face reality in its brutality. Truely inspiring are you (I think that may be Yoda)
