During our time at Loyola, people tended to hand out in the same circles or cliques.
One of the things that I will always remember about Dan was the way that he treated
people. He treated everyone with the same respect - in didn't matter if you were
on the football team, chess club, forensics team, or no team at all. He always
had time for a discussion no matter who you were. He always seemed upbeat, happy
and always wore a grin. I wish I had better memories of a discussion or a moment
that I shared with him, but I do not. I only can remember the kind of person that
he was and strive to be that way myself. Treating everyone with the same level
of respect. I also remember our graduation day and getting chills up my back while
he gave an incredibly eloquent speech out in the hollow that day. I wish that
someone had a copy of that tape and that I could watch that moment again. I, along
with the rest of you, will miss Dan dearly. His memory will not be forgotten.
