    We first met Dan when we purchased our town home from him seven years ago. He was certainly a talented builder and we enjoyed seeing Dan's friendly face in our neighborhood.  Our sincere condolences to the entire family. May your memories of Dan keep his spirit alive.

    Daniel was a fellow musician whom I admired very much, as one of the most graceful men...not just when everything was good either, I especially saw this during his time of strife and struggles. I am very sorry to hear he is gone from our sighted world, but rest assured he will be remembered for the talent he so generously shared, and for his courage -My deepest sympathy, peace, love and prayers for strength, for Bonnie, and the family and friends of a remarkable straight up guy-

    I was very sorry to hear about Dan.  His service today was inspiring.  He had many friends who obviously loved him dearly.  I didn't know Dan well, but I know he was a good man.  He built my home and took great pleasure when I told him how much I loved living in it.  He was proud of his work and very helpful throughout the process.  I hope you find strength in knowing he was so highly thought of by all.

    I was sorry to hear of the passing of Dan today.I was not a close friend,but became aquainted with him from being a Hugh fan of the band. He and the other, other mothers were and are great talented guys in the greatest ( if underrated ) band from n.c. We had many good times back in the day, but I had lost touch with them lately. Dans life shone brightly, but was doused too soon. R.i.p. dan

    When we met Dan it was like walking into a beam of sunlight.  He was so special, so inspiring! He created two lovely townhouses for us as well as the beautiul dream house we live in today.  He was an extraordinary man, both a brilliant contractor and a wonderfull musician.  But most of all he was a remarkably dear man and an ideal friend.  And he will always be!  We love you Dan and we shall miss you so much.

    Looking back at my childhood days spent at the Cowett sanctuary, the warmth and loving appreciation of that time will forever remain with me. Dan's quick wit and saucy smile broke me up numerous times, brightened all our days, even unto the darkest recesses, and gave hope for a brighter tomorrow. He always had a smile in his heart and everyone who met him could see it's brilliance shine forth. He was a wonderful person. Bonnie and family, he will be sorely missed by you, I know. But because he was the person he was, before you is a very large extended family you can call on if and when you need something. You are all in my thoughts and prayers and I am sorry for the feelings of loss you are experiencing. Please don't hesitate to call on me if I can be of any assistance or comfort, now or in the future. Namasté.

    "If a man dies, can he again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service Until my relief comes. You will call and I will answer you, You will long for the work of your hands."   (Job 14:14,15) Death is an interruption of the life that God purposed for mankind. We look to the very near future when He will remove sin and death and accomplish his purpose for the earth.  (Revelation 21:4,5)
