Though I had lost touch with Dana over the years, I was kept up to date on occasion by his sister Debbie. I spent early summers in Park Forest with him, hiss mom and dad, and sister. I remember his creativity and willingness to include me in his projects while I was there. Deepest sympathies to Janet and family, I can't imagine what you're going through; please know others share your loss and are with you in spirit at this most difficult time. My Mother (his aunt Jean), and my brothers send our best.
